Will you steal our shadows too?

By: Vijayshree Kurumilla

You have stolen our waters, our jobs;
You have stolen our land, our coal,
Our trees, our hills, our fields.

You have battered our identity, our monuments,
Our symbols, our gardens, our lakes.

You have stolen our very lives;
Our farmers, our weavers, our students, commit suicide.

What else is left for you to steal now?
When we are not looking, will you steal our shadows too?
