This poem is about Hazaar Ganji Target killing. Hazaar Ganji is name of a place where street vendors go buy vegetables and bring it back in town to sell it to local people. Many times the poor vegetable sellers - street vendors have been targeted by the taliban. I cannot tolerate this inhumanity of the taliban.

Hazaar Ganji


Under the shade of early rise

I drove to the market

The ride of fear for food

Or empty gut and emypty hand

Coin of my pocket’s two sides

Either of life or of death

May land on one side

The undoubted one

I carry my face to the world

It, of no terror of their terror

Gun stands on my way back

I stepped down on their gun tip

The line stands of ethnicity

Shot me down by their belief


Hazaar Ganji: food market esp vegetables

belief: taliban’s belief of killing Hazara because of their ethnicity and religion - Shia
