The Devil Wrote Our Destiny..

The devil himself must have designed our destiny

We can’t find a reason why else it would be

That not just once but repeatedly we find

While the world makes progress, we get left behind

Barely from the middle ages we had emerged

Now a new tsunami has left us submerged

In the abyss of a bloody ocean

Without any warning, without premonition

We are mere puppets in invisible hands

Decisions made by important folks in distant lands

Turn our lives backwards in the blink of an eye

Here we are, before being able to comprehend why,

Back to living under the shadow of fear

Back to shedding silent faceless tears

Suddenly we find ourselves struggling to comply

With archaic rules, we scramble to buy

Burqas- those head to toe coverings designed

To subjugate our souls, our bodies and minds

Forget about any aspirations we might hold dear

It is for our lives and safety that we fear..

**

Why have our stoic Afghani women

To suffer repeated violence been chosen?

We hope against hope there is some justice reserved

For us-for our aggressors to get what they deserve
