Am I Really A Human

Am I Really A Human

AmIReallyAHuman?


In every gap of time,
In this terror-stricken valley,
I can't look out through my window,
I can't step out of my door
I can't watch the sun rising
I can't listen the birds singing
My neighbour has seized my land
He changes its borders,
He redraws its geography
He tries to get me out,
And settle his kiths here
He tries to annihilate me,
And change the demography
My young children are dumped
In unmarked graves, unmourned
My people - young and old -
Are ruthlessly done to death,
And stripped of all human rights
My leaders, and my children,
Are rammed in torture cells
Some placed with murderous criminals,
Some killed by mysterious guns,
Come and see, my children are not safe,
Come and see, my elders are not safe,
Come and see, my women are not safe,
I am at my worst, I am a Kashmiri,
I belong to an endangered race
But nobody seems to care
Despite the recent uproar
Occasionally I ask myself:
Hey! Am I really a human?

Come and see, my children are not safe, Come and see, my elders are not safe, Come and see, my women are not safe, I am at my worst, I am a Kashmiri, //// superb utterance; like it
