I see Kashmir Now

Kashmir
I see a galaxy of stars, in the sparkle of your barrel
When you aim at my people with a finger on the trigger.
I see the festival of death in your bloody eyes
When you play the naked dance of war.
I see a post office flooded with letters, addressed to the lost
Tell 'Ata Mohammad' to mark the unmarked graves.
I see a girl battling with her own conscience
When you pull her scarf and molest her in the midway.
I see the nights searching with candles of hope
For the innocence you buried a long time ago.
I see the lullabies of peace burning in my heart now
Getting doused by the red showers from the skies.
I see Kashmir now, not as a paradise on earth
But as a bruised valley of graves and Mourning people
