One Mans Terrorist Is Another Mans Freedom Fighter... - Poem by Black Consciousness Poetry BCP

I said one mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter...
While you look at me as a villain, somebody else looks at me as hero...
While you look at me as a criminal, another looks at me as a fighter for justice...
While you look at me as an instigator, somebody looks at me as an activist...
One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighter.

You criminalize what I do so as to render me powerless...
You spread evil propaganda against me so as to put terror on my name...
You stole people's freedom of everything, and gave them chains and said they are free and you protecting them from me...but you can't fools all the people all the time...and now they see the light...and now they getting up to fight for their rights...
To you I am a terrorist but to my kind I am a freedom fighter
