Wall_paint,_Dhaka,_Bangladesh.jpg (1800ร—1200)

Wikipedia image of Graffiti

The words are written in Bengali.

……………………………………………….

Freedom or Death says the writing on the wall

For to live without freedom is a curse for mankind

God created His humans to rise and not to fall

This is what History tells us we need not be blind!

………………………….

We were ย united together to have freedom of speech

Slowly we realized it was out of our reach

We’ve been taught we should fight for our right

It seemed impossible and out of our sight!

……………………………….

Who will take stock of the lives we lost

How long will this last and at what cost

It was impossible to calculate the numbers

No one could do it because of the unaccountable murders!

……………………………………..

Will humanity still say we did it all wrong

Pray, guide us and tell us what would you do

If your people were told they did not belong

Would you sit back and let them harm you!

……………………………….

Countless people perished in this war

Who gained by this awful situation

My mind asks this question

There is no one around who knows the answer!

…………………………………….

The silent wall portrays to all who standby

Freedom is necessary to survive,

Without it we may as well die!

……………………………………….. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
