To you, with your masked face and gun in hand.

Filed under: Poetry,Religion and society — by Zuhair @ 6:07 am

You stole them from us with your lies

about paradise and martyrdom.

You took them from their mothers, and their sisters

and told them they are among brothers, fighting for freedom;

You gave them a freedom that requires violence and butchery,

a freedom that steals from the innocents.

You gave them guns for friends

and futile battles for hobbies.

You deceived them into believing

your false ways are the ways of the religion.

You deceived them into thinking

your actions are for the nation.

You lied, and stole and took and misled

your own brothers and sisters,

You gave yourself fancy names,

like, ‘The youth and ‘No more West’.

And all for what? Nothing.

Nothing but the resistance of your own put to the test.

Nothing. Nothing but the tears of orphans

and the blood that spills on the soil that you should call your own.
