My personal experiences with terrorist
Written by Tan Nguyen

My interactions with terrorist,
Having conversations with them,
Talking with them as a human being,
They are the same as you and I,
How many of you had seen,
Or even talked with one?
What makes a person a terrorist?
Its the label that’s misleading,
We tend to label it as religion,
When push comes to shove,
There’s only a limit a person can take,
From my conversations with them,
They are the same as me and you,
There’s no differences,
They have families,
They also have worries,
What’s inronic in all this,
They see us as the terrorist.
I had taken the time,
Invested myself in knowing them,
That alone was seen as a great gesture,
I didn’t judge them,
For that, they were grateful,
We all have our opinions,
It’s everyones right, to do so,
Why not get to know,
Reach out to one another,
Maybe, just maybe,
We are able to understand,
Work out our differences,
And maybe, just maybe,
All the violence around the world,
Would evenutally ceased.
I am not condoning terrorism,
I want people to open up their eyes,
Our tactics so far isn’t working,
It’s spreading hate around the world,
We are meant to be the world leaders,
Time to act like one,
Things are getting worst,
Time to change our tactics,
Time to really get to the roots,
To solve the problems,
Instead of spreading more violence,
Enough is enough,
How many more blood must be spilled?
How many more deaths?
On both sides, not just one,
Time to take responsibilities,
For our own actions,
The time is now!
