Rwandan Genocide - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

In this day
Anniversary of genocide
I swear he is Hutu

Came to us from Congo
“Escapee, refugee”
In Russia
A black among whites
Prey for Skinheads

He claimed:
“I fled of my kind”
And went on, “For helping the Tutsis”

We helped him honestly
As you help the Polish
For saving the Jewish

But in me, deep inside
I have dreams and nightmares
“You have helped a criminal”

He’s living in comfort
New land, in Finland

This is pain when you work
With mankind, UNHCR
You have a say and a word.

Was I kind, forgiving?
Am I part of a crime?
