Human categorization

Dr.Suryaraju Mattimalla

My soul is burning.

But still, I am alive.


My body is burning.

But still, I am alive.


Soul burners

Body cremators

Are cheering at each other.


But still, I am alive.

Fighting for human status

Fighting for human equality

Fighting for freedom

Fighting for respect

Fighting for dignity

Fighting for identity

Fighting for recognition

Fighting for liberty

Fighting for life

  • Comment from author about the poem: The soul and body are metaphors for voiceless communities. Burners and cremators are tormentors of voiceless groups. Human or social categorizations of people are soul and body burners and cremators in any society. Let us fight against human categorization in any form.

      BLM, LGBTQ, or any marginal voice teaches to fight, fight, fight for freedom.

        It takes two to fight
