I Pass These Graves Everyday - Poem by Alefya Najmi

I pass these graves everyday

And everyday when I lay my eyes

On these silent observers

A thought occurs which leaves me trembling

What would these people locked in the their eternal abode would say

If their silence is replaced

“ O the damned race

when will you forgo your wretched ways

open your eyes and see

how fate has treated us

once we were

and now our silence must be heard.”
