Just taken from the News in May

 

Once again, my Muse peered into the future and these few words filled my page.

I live with my Muse and sometimes she has no choice but to sadden me.

*********************************

With more death of children in the city of Peshawar, I am saddened by the loss of so many families.
The cheers of children playing soccer on a field in Lahore were silenced by those same extremists who caused the tears of loss in Pakistan.
We must stop the fighting.
We must save the children.
*****************************
With some of the events that have taken place in Lahore in the last few days, I wanted to bring this piece up to the top.

I took a Daewoo bus

back to Lahore

feeling Tears and Joys for going

back to Lahore.

To the warmth of a home

and an empty field

there were few cheers going

back to Lahore.

There is Peace there now

said young Ibrahim

the eldest of six boys going

Back to Lahore.

A tourist unknown, from an oft traveled path,

dreams of the foods and the spirits leading

Back to Lahore.

Long life and prospers going

Back to Lahore.
