looking back to the days
when they came
just like thieves at night
with our eyes widely open;
looking like unwary strangers in our land.
they brought peace, as they claimed,
accompanied with truths and lies
we thought it was a blessing;
we thought our fears would be conquered.
we neglected our norms;
accepted theirs in guise of them bringing peace.
they left us after we had eaten and digested their norms.
they took few of us
turned us against ourselves.
Now we wail,
singing in one tone of freedom;
trying to free ourselves from the cage.
