Stand for Kashmir

Kashmir has been under siege for more than a month now. I have been feeling helpless regarding the issue, because 'what can I do anyway to help?' If that is a thought you also are a victim to, realize that we can actually do something. We can raise our voice so the world notices. We can spread awareness on the issue. We can pray for Kashmir. I hope a peaceful solution to the Kashmir issue is found, and the world realizes that it can not remain silent on injustice.

When you feel helpless,
Realize that you live in a day and an age,
Where you don't have to stand on the sidelines,
The most powerful weapon you can engage,
Is to raise your voice for the innocents,
Whose land has been turned into a cage,
Freedom shackled in their own homes,
Restrictions, curfews, an outright siege,
Kashmir now hauntingly shares,
Stories of horror, brutality and rage,
The world remains asleep,
Ignoring the atrocities happening backstage,
Raise your voice to wake up the world,
Let them open their eyes and themselves gauge,
Do they want their deafening silence on cruelty,
Be the story they want to leave on history's page?
Tell the slumbering souls of humanity to wake up,
Wake up world and stop this outrage.
