Welcome 2013

Behold the sun of two thousand twelve go 
It rose on January one with pomp and show
Like dethroned Presidents of many countries whose
National wealth decline and personal grow

Two thousand thirteen ushers in
On it the people and nations their hopes pin
One more promise one more hope
Spain and Greece will climb up the slope

Portugal will once more its glory regain
New York will not be devastated by rain
Rulers and kings will perform such feat
The year will poverty and hardship defeat

Taliban and Al-Qaida will meet their doom
On the heads of Syrians death won’t loom
Deprivation and misery will rule no more
Greed and lust will see the door

Religious intolerance would be words unknown 
Skies won’t see the flight of drone
Kashmiris and Palestinian’s plight will end
People would rally and freedom defend

Victory of justice protection of rights
Lust harnessed that misery invites
Human souls saved from hunger, disease
World will witness life expectancy increase

This will prove a different year
Hearts will know no  tyrant’s fear

    Thanks for your kind appreciation, Anne. Hope is always better than despair. I am a great optimist. I am sorry for my delayed response to your comments. I was busy attending a Two Day International Conference of Writers & Intellectuals organized by Pakistan Academy of Letters in Islamabad. I flew back to Karachi only last night. God bless you for your sweet thoughts. Love. -Mohammad

    I am so pleased you like my poem of hope in today's troubled world. I beleive that world leaders should learn from the past and plan the future in keeping with the hopes and aspirations of the oppressed people of the world. This alone will bring cheer and happiness in lives. Thanks for your kind words. Love. -Mohammad
