War Cry by Ananya S Guha

There isn’t a way of walking
only blood
don’t trespass those roads
blood will kill you
guns won’t
only blood will recall history and
present smeared with blood
on graves.
Some don’t even have them.
They have left only traces of blood.
Smear it on your face
holler out a war cry.
