we shall keep calling out

a nation ..destroyed...unjustly

in hate and prejudice.....in blinding illiterate anger

no day nor night can hold us from speaking out

our future...ripped forcefully from our tender hands

 the chance to become an icon..our hopes our dreams

a husband...wife.....a child or two

all these taken away from us....leaving us with empty echoes

our silence hold the loudest noise

the deepest hum

none can shut it out

...to serve our fatherland was the oath

Under the sun or in the rain

To make our nation proud...our familes....our guardians

In joy and smiles....we walked ahead.....

To an undisclosed impending doom...

Knives swiped....guns roared.....

absolute silence

Our future was gone

Wiped clean....from the slate of time

Not minding the youthful vigour...the promises of a bright future

For somebody’s someone

A neighbour .....husband....a mother’s only child

In  chaos and confusion we left

Yet our voices shall echo through the silence of time

Remember us.... for even we........

Have lived........ laughed...... and loved...
