Afganistan..after 20 years

American Americans go away
No need to come back and troop up again
You never were there to reduce their pain
In all the crisis you only have gained
To prove your point and domain

Americans Americans board your planes
Dissidents are here to add to Afganis strain
Roaming here and there like a stray
Finding pleasure in killing and bloodstain
Pouncing on females and kids untamed

American Americans just watch through rear
In twenty years that you were here
They might have lived without any fear
Empowering them, physically and mentally
You could have created a powerful frontier

Americans Americans if only you could have aided
The destiny of this nation now stands faded
Your wishful purpose to control is fulfilled,
Their dreams and happiness have enough been swayed
Any chance of bright future have been sprayed

Americans Americans please disengage
Talibanis are hellbent to take them backage
Were every little steps of afganis will be gazed
They will be subject to torture and rage
Waiting and waiting for this time to outphase

Americans Americans you have no clue
How fright of every afganis have come true
Were they will have no right to pursue
While we sit and watch their torment
The scars of girls and women with resent

Americans Americans bear the grudge
A country known for shawls, and nuts
Fruits like melon and pomegranates
Will now be a subject to pistols, guns and granades
Hope they don't lose their strength and sane
For talibanis and their wishes are highly insane...

About this poem

American presence for 20 yrs did not empower Afganis enough to fight stronger and harder against talibanis
