Here’s poem by Sehar, in Different Truths that emerged following her recent conversations, in real and the virtual (read digital) spaces. She’s grateful to her teacher, Mamta Joshi, for this protest poem.
As days pass by the question mark enlarges
Slowly it begins to take shape
The world keeps thinking …
Who is the oppressor?
Who is the oppressed?
While the shape turns into a demon
The world bleeds,
We dangle between the right and wrong
The demon begins to tighten the noose
Now, the shades of grey don’t seem to fit right anymore
The dawn looks distant,
As vengeance reigns high,
One gets burdened with pain and terror
The other fights with vengeance and terror
Days pass by, while the question mark enlarges day after day.
