Wounds of 1984

Operation Blue Star silenced worship, Silenced human rights with a genocide. Lives cost, And families lost.

Trauma dripping into our bloodlines, Bleeding through us,

As their damage moves with the times.

Wounds of 1984,

Opened again with The Green Revolution, Opened again with Jagtar Singh Johal,

Opened again with the farmers

Fighting India’s son and his laws of oppression. Tell me how the Sikh spirit heals chronic injustice, And continues to transform it into bravery, kindness and peace.
