We Will Snatch Your Crown

By Dr. Rabia Parveen

We will snatch your crown,

And the throne will be ours .

This nightmare will be broken one day,

and the time will be ours.

Treat the termite rotting the roots of democracy.

The black agriculture laws:

refute with body and mind.

Talk about what is in the heart of each person:

It is we who will rule.

This nightmare will be broken one day,

and the time will be ours.

 

You spread a million barriers,

Or dig trenches in our path.

Shower with cold water

or fill our eyes with tears.

When we’ve decided to do or die,

who needs any other slogan?

This nightmare will be broken one day,

and the time will be ours.

 

Our labor should get full respect,

and full payment for grains.

Neither mortgage on our land,

nor the corporates’ evil eye.

Then such a sun will rise,

That will never set  again.

This nightmare will be broken one day,

and the time will be ours.

 

It’s we who wake up the morning,

no matter how cold it is.

And it is our sweat that cools

the scorching heat in summer.

Our unshakeable willpower

has now joined the fight.

This nightmare will break one day,

and the time will be ours.

 

Mother earth lets her children

Plough on her chest.

Carrying a mother’s love in her heart,

She silently drinks the poison.

When the earth will drape a green dupatta

what a beautiful sight it shall be—

One day the nightmare will be broken,

and the time will be ours.
