On the Truth & Reconciliation Day-Everyday, Siraj Iqbal

The truth of the facts are: Indigenous kids were snatched …!
In the name of Education & nourishments…!!
Brain washed to leave their own language, cultures…!
From their parents and siblings, in the name of “care”…!!

 

The truth of the facts are: Indigenous kids were forced…/!
To learn, English, and converted to Christianity…!!
Against their will by the Boarding Schools, Admin…!
If not, followed by tortures, malnutritions & unethical…!!

 

The truth of the facts are: Back in 1980’s…!
Canada Day was called “Dominion Day” 1st of July…!!
It seemed, to celebrate, how to dominate aboriginals…!
In actual fact, in disguise of Canada’s Birthday…!!

 

O! God! You are the Supreme power to bring Justice…!
To bring the “Truth & Reconciliation” among Indigenous…!!
Whites, Blacks, Asians, Indians,colored, castes & creeds…!
To unify all Canadians under the Charter of Rights…!!

 

O! God! Let the “Truth & Reconciliation” day be every day…!
Let the Aboriginals live in this country & everywhere…!!
As good, prosperous citizens of their respective countries…/@
Let them be treated as humanbeings under Your sky;—
As Your best creations…!!
Ameen

 

Yours truly,
