What were you thinking?
You could get away with Betrayal?
I dream I am sitting with family
all of us together, laughing at a TV show,
and all is peaceful;
then, suddenly—Taliban appear in the hills
Afshar repeats here again and again!
Ghor repeats here again and again!
Jalriz repeats here again and again!
And I die again and again by the name of Hazara.
Life is God’s gift –
The beheading of a young body here and there
Spirits ruined, bodies shocked, souls separated
History is changed by the small actions of ordinary people. —Zahra A.
