Kashmir – 24th April ’09

I was just imagining, closing my eyes, what it would have been amidst Kashmir, a disputed state. The Muslim majority there opts to join Pakistan, however,  Indian troops have had it forcefully occupied and a ceasefire is issued currently. I know I went overboard with the You’s and And’s, still, it made an impression to me and still does whenever I read it. May peace be granted to Kashmir and it’s residents =)

After a bang, you open your eyes
And listen to mothers’ cries,
You get up from your bed
And see people, all dead,
You stay calm, when you should panic
And think, how ironic,
You see tanks make an appearance
Did they come for your assistance?
You reach your hand out to the door
And the ground shakes, throwing you to the floor,
You get up, with your ankle twisted
By the wind, let yourself be drifted,
You walk out, and stand on the wasted land
See a child crying, but not offering a hand,
You see your land in ruin
And see someone beckoning you in,
You enter in, seeing your bed
Next, you are shot in the head,
You fall slowly down, on the ground
Wake up to see candles burning around,
You are surprised to see, you live
No destiny, no aim, no motive,
You nevertheless live life in fear
For what you imagined, was Kashmir
