No to Brutality

No! We say No
we’ve bled enough
streams of blood
gushed on our ground
the crushed cries
our mothers weep
our fathers groan
which should be forgotten?
the pain of incubation,
or the process of nurturing
or the promise of hope
cut short – wasted at prime
by the absurd trigger freaks
or the tortures
or the extortions
which exactly should
be forgotten?
united we remain
and we say:
No to brutality!
