I am back with my next poem and I hope its better than the first one. Independence day is round the corner and celebrations are waiting. Let us give a thought and think if we are really independent. Long awaiting liberty got at last! As darkness engulfed, a new nation arouse Midnight struck and foreigners left May Martyrs soul rest in peace Their lives they paid The flag unfurled, a historic day marked Yes, Freedom we got and dreams with hopes Along came the partitions and riots, disturbance they caused Packed to leave house born in, killed in a nation they grew up Sadness encroached them as another day born Hopes of happiness, joy still lived, and life continued With rejoice I open my eyes An independent nation I see Happy faces, their lightening smile As I grow, stories I hear, make me think Glad am I, born in a country free As I grow, I see hate and fear A man stabs another, a life is lost A man robs another, a state of grief Hate and fear rules the heart I look around to find a life of love As I grow I see greedy men Leading us with money in mind To serve people, we elect Their safe hands turn dirty as they rule I look around to find a soul to save As I grow I see jealousy, anger, cold Houses burnt and fountains of blood I see them all with tears in eyes Hate and fear, I see beside Greedy men, jealous with anger I turn to God to stop this all Give us nation with people happy, I plead I gave you "Love", you turned to "Hate", HE tells I wished you "Prosper", it made you "Greedy", HE tells Help each other to create Love, HE tells and blesses I look for help to find them busy I call and shout "Lets Live and Let live" Lets come together to rise the nation great Lets build the dream we saw Still long awaiting the liberty we need!
