Theme: Patriotism


Nothing has been ever
Used, misused
And abused
More than
My Motherland!

Under the whole blue sky!

To divide
Mother against mother,
Man against man,
Religion against religion,
God against God!

I pity the guards
The dividing lines and fences
On the bosom of my mother
Whose rhythm of life and leisure
Remains undisturbed.

What and who has eclipsed
The purity and peace
Of my motherland?
Molten lead forced
Into the womb of my mother
Is bringing forth
Hard, callous and dead

Day and night
Are committed atrocities
To defile, denude and degrade,
To tyrannize and terrorize
The impoverished,
The denied, the devoid and the diseased
To run charities
To parade and prosperity
With pomposity-
On my motherland!

Mother in motherland,
Yearningly and eagerly
Looks forward
To the superficial
And the superimposed
Boundaries, borders
And bifurcations –
On counts countless-
When there is freedom,
Openness and soothing harmonies
With sun, stars and moons!

My mother, motherland,
Still has the heart to smile,
Bloom and blossom,
And ever magnanimous
In her radiant sacrifices
And godly glory;
Enriching and enlightening
Her sons spoilt
And daughters disgraced.
Life is an eternal song
Of her endurance in fortitude
Amidst splashing innocent blood
And fire-flames of hatred
Painted and polished
With the Light of sacred Reason!
