We Have Failed You

My tongue is severed from my mouth

My eyes have been gorged out

My ears have been served with molten iron

My nose has been chopped off

My hair has been burnt

My belongings have been shunned

My clothes have been shredded

My face has been smeared

My limbs have been twisted

My joints have been hammered

My legs have been mutilated

My rights have been wronged

My wrongs have been graded

I still go on to breathe the air of ‘others’

I’m forced to survive

I am

Democracy
