We Keep Going On / Poem by NilavroNill Shoovroo

We Keep Going On
 
we keep going on following the rules
hoping beyond the hurdles
peacekeepers are waiting for us
 
we keep going on beyond everything
the tortured faiths and distorted beliefs
even around traders’ auctions of dead bodies
 
we keep going on and on for generations
of believers, even with wounded steps
even with fractured dreams and lost hopes
 
we keep going on, marching forward
with pride and as we are being taught
to fight among the equals for glory…
 
we keep going on to pay homage to the rulers
where the chamber of commerce waves hands
where the dead souls of our ancestors died…
