Kashmir Will Rise Again

From the defrosting flake of my Snow; From the rusted strand of my Saffron; From the abscised leaves of my Chinar; From the drips of ale of my Jhelum; I will rise; I will rise Wailing for my martyred son, From the cry of a...

Should I Forget?

should I forget
Why conceal the truth under the new snow? In pursuit of winter sports on snow covered meadows Which are as dark as the snow above is white. With the massacre of each village blood red. Should I count Gaw Kadal, Alamgari Bazar or Wandhama? Or all others that you...

a trembling poem thunders of freedom stitched with blood drowns in the soul or blows up the numb patience i shut myself away (in the single eternal moment) suffering memories grow edges (like swords) the throat-cut flowers in the heart bleed moonlight so brave yet quiet still the stars (full of scars) are looking for echoes in a trembling poem

Kashmir – A River Of Blood

For how long shall our blood be spilled? For how long shall we be shackled? Redemption has to be divine, For our ranks have been left asunder; Overtly by a foe, Whom, for the centuries to come, we will remember. The facade of murky haze shall vanish, And a new dawn...
