they erased your existence,

you looked on,

thinking of home.

they tried and tried

to make you find yourself in the soils of a land

that you did not belong to,

they forgot the traces of you.

they forgot you,

in pursuit of finding you,

they forgot you,

in attempt to sell you to a man

who only knew you by hand.

I swear, just like you

that I know their intentions from borders away. – Shazmeen خالد (at Bhimber)
