A Message from the Fallen by Yasin Shah

You have us trained,

to accept these chains.

That entrap us daily and keep us “sane”.


Are we meant to be pleased,

with being treated as fleas?

We’re not oblivious to the truth, we can see!


You’ve entrapped our bodies,not our brains.

Your efforts to control us are nothing short of lame.

We are not peas in a pod, yet we are one and the same.


We will rise up and seize,

all you have brainwashed us to believe,

and tear and rip it piece by piece.


You may try to hide,

behind the many times you’ve lied.

But the truth is out and you can’t deny.


This new world order bluff,

of which we’ve heard enough.

We will rise and thoroughly crush


Over resources you’ve squabbled, over lands you’ve vied.

With blood of innocents, bullets of murderers you’ve signed,

Many a peaceful society lives.


But we below you are hardy and tough.

You may draw us up and hang us by the cuffs.

But still united we’ll stand, your efforts not enough.


You’ve silenced many known and unknown faces.

Regardless of colour, regardless of races.

Yet it’s mostly the coloured you’ve wasted.


Still united we’ll stand,divided we’ll fall.

The fight against exploitation,we’ll answer the call!

Knocking down what comes in our way. Fence,barrier or wall.


You will not stop our pace,

the revolution moves forward with haste.

Reducing our enemies to powder and paste.


We will knock down the buildings,knock down the walls.

No matter how large, or strong, or tall.

You may stop some,but you will never stop us all!
