My Gunhi by Syon GuruPrasad (Highly Commended)

You can see the fireworks
But my gunhi heard the gunshots
You celebrate with your family
But my gunhi was in riots

You tell me I should celebrate
But  today is one for mourning
All I need is empathy
for my heart is still hurting

Our land is burnt till it’s dry
What worse could happen
For you still look in the pretty sky
And yet for me today is the day to cry
