Torn

by Sanjida Shaheed

This grief
Is tearing me apart.
This misery
Is nauseating.
I have only
A tiny morsel of courage left.

Should I back out?
Should I join the crowd?
Should I cheer for blindness
Together with them all?

This lonely journey
Is breaking my heart.
They poisoned me
With non-stop propaganda.
They veiled truth from me.
They led me to a blind alley.
And I grudgingly complied.

I have sold my soul
Under pressure.
Now all I have left is
This empty body.
And I don’t know
What to do with it.
