An Unknown Terrorist – The Making to The End!

06 Dec

I didn’t know if I was doing it wrong or right…
But I had been told to stand up and fight!
I didn’t know who they were, what they wanted…
I was told that all my kins wishes would be granted!

I didn’t know where I was, but I was being trained…
I knew one thing, that soon my hands would get stained!
I played with wires and circuits, learnt to set the time…
I didn’t realise that in the name of religion, I was doing crime!

I ran miles everyday, shot several rounds…
On being selected for the ‘mission’, my happiness had no bounds!
I didn’t know if I was coming back, I was not promised that…
I was thinking blank, as I had the freedom to be a brat!

I wasn’t sure – to do or not to do – but I gunned down a few…
Some shouted, while some cried and some were dead before they knew!
I wanted this to get over soon, and get back to my base….
And it did happen just too quick, as I was shot in the face!

I fell to the ground, and an unknown land I did embrace…
I knew it late that I was wrong, and I had lost my only race!

    Wow is this sree, the one I knew,
    writing he can, but poetry is new…
    The “knew” in first line is cause I thought I know who you are…

    one of your best posts. few would look at a terrorist as a human. read somewhere that they are trained to look at other humans / victims as mere objects. absolutely grotesque.

    @ Amrita,

    Indeed very barbaric an image that is presented to the would-be terrorist…and that leads to a barbaric act…its the root that has to be removed and not the leaves…
    Thanks for liking it buddy! 😀
