Colonized Thoughts

 

Enslaved.

Our thoughts were enslaved.

Three hundred years of invasion

Invaded the thoughts and minds.

Who are we?

Our appearance changed.

Our lifestyle changed.

The language we speak changed.

The war of three  decades

Displaced us.

Shattered us all around the world

Losing our identity.

Some find pride in not speaking Tamil.

Some find pride in losing our values.

Some find pride in being lost.

We are now Canadian, French, Italian, German, Norwegian and American.

Not Tamilan any more.

Can’t we be a Canadian Tamil or an Italian Tamil?
