Fake Freedom

Fake Freedom

Under these Bullets and bombs Missiles and drones Our skin tone is not Still humanised enough To touch the merit of Human Rights… Because we don’t own Manacles of your So called “Revolutions” That are still caging our words In the prison of your “Fake freedom” Keep terrorizing Keep killing Keep droning our acreage Till […]

I was lost

I was lost

I was lost in the middle of a sea I don’t know where to go Like a ship I was sailing For myself I was wailing Though I was searching my destiny To find the smile and end my agony It was not cushy for me Because I was lost in the middle of a […]
