Rise In Protest - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Rise in protest

My heart goes to weeping mothers
Who daily lose their dears?
Either by enemies within
Or by bombing to push help in

How many loose lives?
Who shall believe?
It is mad race
Just thrust upon unfortunate ones

At one side we are imprisoned
Or like animals cordoned
Another side friendly forces attack
We are constantly on run and check

We are fortunate too
To escape dragnet
And clutches of insurgents
Now we feel little safe at another gate

Local population rise in protest
This part is really acid test
We have nothing to survive
We shall need aid to live
