You are a Terrorist

Written by: Chhutan Dey

They killed your sons and daughters
they killed your relatives
they killed each of them
who claimed to be yours
you took an oath
to get your nearests 
back to the earth
you preferred black
you preferred darkness to light
you gradually dissociated yourself
from those
you were fighting for
one fine day 
you demanded your world
and your original color
they failed to recognize you properly
because they thought
you changed a lot
they knew 
you did never like guns and bullets

they apologized 
saying that that was not the way
to demand things
they asked you 
to change your dress
to shave your face
to produce your identity card

YOU ARE FAILED
but never mind
you are a terrorist
they say.
