I am human.

I am human.

My blood flows and my breath rises and falls.

They are coming for me from every corner possible

I find no place to run

And They say I am a thief

I am silent because I can’t speak their language

But they thought I was silent for doing wrong

I look at them and expect them to understand as they are human too

They search my baggage for finding something and I let them do

They stare at me and push me and pull me and I don’t fight

Because I know they are human too

Then came the first blow and then the second, on my body which was weak of days’ hunger

I wish I could stop them but they were too many

I wish I could tell them I am no bad human being.. I was just hungry

My home was taken away long back and my food too, by the humans who were beating me

I struggled and writhed when I thought about my family which waited for me to bring food home

I knew it was my last breath when I saw the faces around me..

..laughing and smirking ..may be because I looked different

Before I left, paying for food with my life,

There was one final question I wanted to ask..

Were these humans the same kind of human that I was?!

 

-Anjana

P.S: It hurt badly when the news of Madhu’s mob handling and death came to me. One look at that face and the eyes, I couldn’t imagine how anyone could place a hand on him.  I sincerely pray that a day comes when we overcome the deep crisis of lack of human values and recognize the humanity ingrained in each and everyone of us.
