We did not go on to the stage, Neither were we called.


We did not go on to the stage,
Neither were we called.
We were shown our places,
told to sit.
But they, sitting on the stage,
went on telling us of our sorrows,
our sorrows remained ours, they never became theirs.

— Waharu Sonawane, A tribal poet.
