To All New Mothers of Kashmir

mabrook, you are a mouj now, be wise — prepare his head

for a bullet a charming martyr with green eyes — prepare his head for a bullet

children who survive are all blind, they shot pellets in their eyes

they target the kids and never compromise — prepare his head for a bullet

wamiq, salik, sameer, sajad. they were all killed so young

who even heard their mothers’ sighs! prepare his head for a bullet

here, the stories of young men are the shortest of all

from one paradise to other paradise — prepare his head for a bullet

they drank wine in their skull, made garlands of their noses and ears

for musaibs of our ummah, that’s the prize — prepare his head for a bullet

you can’t protect him, they are everywhere, they are all dangerous

jkp, crpf, rr, sog- their spies and allies — prepare his head for a bullet

the laments of our mothers become the lyrics of our songs

the best of eulogies — our mother’s cries — prepare his head for a bullet

mabrookcongratulations

mouj: mother

Musaib bin Umayr: one of the great companions of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him)
