He wept as he saw them vanish within a torrent.
Another lost her arms and legs.
Her pain can be seen in her eyes as she begs.
He cursed his killer before taking his last breath.
“The Almighty will not forgive you”, he said embracing death.
It aches my heart seeing innocent children being killed.
Somewhere within me I feel awfully shrilled.
They are proud to be Myanmar native.
Despite being Rohingyas they have the right to live.
They condign a safe environment.

What is their fault after all?
Is their identity responsible for this down-fall?
