In Peace, I Protest

picassoguernica

By:-rANJEETA nATH gHAI

For replacing towering trees with skyscrapers
And soil with concrete.
For arms and ammunition in the hands of children
And children in wombs addicted to drugs.
For every abused citizen of the country
And every veteran fighting for his right
In peace, I protest.

*

For every menacing bomb that replaces literature
And takes away our freedom of speech.
For every forceful government
Whose policies leave us numb.
For every farmer whose yield goes waste
And inflation breaking his backbone driving him to suicide.
In peace, I protest.

*

For every citizen continually fighting
For the right to represent himself as an equal.
For paid media creating a chaotic and a violent environment
As they continually prove they are pawns to the system.
For extreme consequences that nonconformity brings
And disparities on the pretext of complexion, culture, and religious beliefs.
In peace, I protest.

*

It’s time to speak up
And protest against the laws
That allow the violation of our human liberties
And deterioration of our resources.
It’s time to lead, and simply
Be the change we want to see
It’s time to protest in peace.
