This is Kashmir.

Hue and cry everywhere 

I couldn’t understand a thing

I began to run

Until I heard a cry!

She was on her knees 

Her tears touching the ground 

Holding in her arms

Her 12 year-old

Shot by a bullet

He fell down

Those hounds approached her

Even she was not to spare

I asked someone

How could one do so

He replied to me 

This is Kashmir
