‘In front of my eyes are the walls of slavery’

RAHAT RIYAZ
I might look happy though. But,
In front of my eyes are the walls of slavery
I might look happy though. But,
inside my every story there is a pool of blood
I might look happy though. But,
inside my soul there are memories of martyrs
I might look happy though. But,
Inside my single smile there is a sigh of broken promises
I might look happy though. But,
Inside my every nerve, there is a widow shedding her tears
I might look happy though. But,
Inside the darkness there are women being raped by saviors
I might look happy though. But,
The rise of the dawn starts with the wounds of torture
I might look happy though. But,
The sun sets with the horror of another death
I might look happy though. But,
The Freedom of life is being caged by the brokers of humanity
