Don'T You Remember? - Poem by Deependra Kumar Jha

Even during the days of struggle between life & death,
we used to see love in each other's eye
Even during the days of mistrust & dissonance,
we used to see dreams of happiness in each other's eye
All round year - January through December,
Don't you remember?

Those slogans of equality & development
Enthusiasm to 'change' history & people's sentiment
You distributed 'dreams' in the eyes of many,
those speeches of prosperity & all-round improvement
With no bias to any caste & gender,
Don't you remember?

Though, struggle is still around,
I can't see dreams in your eyes now
With 'no' trust & togetherness around,
I can't see happiness in your eyes now

Over the death-bed of martyrs,
you created storm of change
but, it seems, you have changed yourself,
it's impossible to escape from people's lens
It's time to act, not to talk; don't think to surrender,
Don't you remember?

(A tribute to the prevailing political situation in NEPAL)
