They Fear “You”


They fear you because you’re young, strong, learning self respect,

They fear you because you are educating yourselves – getting inspiration from Dr Ambedkar,

They fear you because of your rich history,

They fear you because you renounced religion of discrimination,

They fear you because you’re the future,

They fear you because they are losing power – gained through killing us,

They fear you because you are the generation that will be free,

Free from discrimination, freedom from all the miseries of life – a far-away dream,

They fear you because the potential you’ve to heal the past and be real,

How powerful you must be that they fear you so much,

They fear you so much that they kill you every-day, trying to curb few.

They fear you because of your resentment, retribution,

Let’s make their nights sleepless, Educate – Unite – Struggle

Let them hate you as long as they fear you,

We fear them but we don’t forget, we’re still children, we’re young,

Every day we grow older, every day we grow stronger,

And we don’t forget…

–          A poem for young “Dalit”  minds

    What symbol/image would you use to signify Dalit unity, struggle and strength? (e.g. for Christians it would be the Cross that Jesus died on)
