the voice of a refugee

The voice of a refugee

What happened to this world?	
So beautiful in the past
The rivers lakes and oceans
And fragrance of the grass
 
And now the land is barron
It's no more fertile
I hope that the plants grow
Once again for a while
 
What happened to our society
So generous in the past
Now there is terror
Scaring the mass
Aware of all around me
but one thing I could not stand
It was worse than I could see
 
Women being beaten up
Children badly tortured
Level of terror rising up
No one's being nurtured
 
I want to change this
And bring back humility
Return the nature's bliss
And bring back prosperity
 
Then I realised that
I should be the change I want to see
To bring back that ball and bat
Instead of guns and artillery
 
I want to live freely
And not be so confined
It's not easy being a refugee
No house to live and place to find
 
It's my request to the world
To please help me
To be the change I want to see
And again be free

The rain of nostalgia

What a pleasant time of the year!
For showers of blessings have come
A glorious time for others,
But painful for some..

The children are out already,
Leaping in puddles of joy
I just sit, and watch them
Remembering myself as a boy..

Every drop reminds me,
Of all my happy days
But now no-one listens,
They're off on their own ways...

My mind is now wandering..
Down the memory lane
As i stand with my umbrella,
In this never ending rain...

The Earth

The earth it's so strange
This world out of my range
I hope it'll change
I do hope it'll change
 
 
What use of taking oath
When it can't be fulfilled
This money will be useless
when everyone'll be killed
 
 
The 9/11 attack
How can we ever forget?
It's the dreadful day all of us
Very sadly regret
 
 
The Peshawar attack
Blew up a million hearts
They pierced children one by one
As if playing darts
 
 
I never understood
What these people want
Because all they really do is
Mercilessly taunt
 
 
The 13/11 of Paris
So many people died
And I can't even wonder
Beneath my feet they lied
 
 
 
They just rub their knife
And never hesitate
They easily take our precious life
And never make it late
 
 
And in those last moments
I say a prayer for my loved ones
Oh God! please have mercy
And take away those guns

The night before

Amidst the moonlit night,
we sit hand in hand...
Your eyes give away your plight,
In a silent world, we stand...

Your charming face looks grim,
and why would it not?
In a sea of emotions, we swim
our seeds of the future rot...

It's the night before you deploy,
into a land unknown...
You'll be joining your convoy,
after leaving us all alone...

Our mouths don't utter a word,
our eyes are enough to convey..
To each other, the love in our heart,
which we wished to say..

And then the morning comes,
but the sun doesn't seem that bright...
Even the sky has seemed to have understood,
the intensity of our plight...

How ironic as you walk away
the radio plays our special song...
Now my words can't make you stay,
After all, it would only be wrong...

It's been a few months since you left,
The world seems to fall, back in place...
Everything seems a little bereft,
All i need is your embrace...

I'm lying in the wake of the dying sun,
Waiting for you,
To return...

Bleeding Pen

Today this pen shan't write but bleed
For my heart and soul have open scars
This pressure from within, to succeed
Has me thinking if I'm behind the bars

Caged till I win, caged till I conquer
There seems to be no other way
Every night seems a few minutes longer
As I reflect and plan for another day

How wonderful it would be
To live a life without regrets
When my mind and heart both agree
and stop singing melancholic duets

This isn't me, just can't be me
I never saw this version of myself before
My thoughts feel heavy, they want to be free
I find it hard to shut this door

This pen's ink will soon run out
But this poetess' wounds shall keep dripping
My notepad says it can hear me shout
As the pages of my life keep flipping....

Another Love

Beautifully strung words by Tom Odell-

I wanna take you somewhere so you know I care
But it's so cold and I don't know where
I brought you daffodils in a pretty string
But they won't flower like they did last spring

And I wanna kiss you, make you feel alright
I'm just so tired to share my nights
I wanna cry and I wanna love
But all my tears have been used up

On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up

And if somebody hurts you, I wanna fight
But my hand's been broken, one too many times
So I'll use my voice, I'll be so ing rude
Words they always win, but I know I'll lose

And I'd sing a song, that'd be just ours
But I sang 'em all to another heart
And I wanna cry, I wanna learn to love
But all my tears have been used up

On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up

I wanna sing a song, that'd be just ours
But I sang 'em all to another heart
And I wanna cry, I wanna fall in love
But all my tears have been used up...........

I will love you

i will love you
wherever you go, wherever you are
i will love you
with the light of the pole star

I will never forget,
all the lovely days we spent,
the blooming flowers and squirrels
and the honeysuckle scent....

The afternoons on the bank
with the sun shining down
and the morning as it sank
in the forests' crown

The shimmering night
the twinkling stars
shining bright
revealing their scars

the memories are stuck with me
with the desire of telling you
that we'll be like the sky and sea
and have a rendezvous.......

A different kind of love

I was quite young when I saw him for the first time...
I admit I was unsure about it...
But...
It was the first time I had felt such a connection...
a longing...a necessity...
I approached him nervously...
I still wasn't convinced!
But he held me in his arms...and promised to keep me safe...
I felt strangely attracted...it wasn't something I had experienced before!
Although our meeting was short...he didn't leave my mind...
I searched for him day and night!....
I was restless...and couldn't wait to meet him again...
He had promised me..that he will come...
and he did!
My happiness knew no bounds!
And when I saw him...he was more fascinating than before!
He loomed large on the tarmac...
And told me to accompany him...in the journey through the skies!
On wings of love we soared...
He asked me to promise him my devotion...
I did...
And then..again flew off my dreamliner...into the skies...
Waiting for me to someday sit in the cockpit...
And see the world through his eyes...
And that's how I fell in love...
with aviation!

A Touch

I came across you in the most peculiar way….
An exchange of ideas on an ordinary day!
Unaware of what those words would start,
Paved the path for an exchange of hearts….

As days passed, I got to know more
Something more amusing than the day before...
Often, conversations lasted till late
With shy speculations about our first date...

I explored you beyond what you portrayed 
Beyond what mere letters conveyed... 
I realised you are a part of me
An incomplete half that I could never see...

You stripped me off my insecurities 
While delicately handling vulnerabilities,
And touched my soul like no one could,
Even the unsaid seemed to have been understood... 

When I realised that you’re The One
Was the moment I knew there’s no moving on,
Even after being miles apart
You’re the one who’s closest to my heart...

Why do I love you? I do not know
My lips might tell when they’ll kiss you slow...
All I know, is that there’s no other way
I’ll love you more, every single day….

What separates us is one single touch
A sensation that would mean so much….
The union of two long lost souls,
Coming together to form a whole....

A flow of energy from my body to yours,
Would feel like tides on empty shores...
I yearn for our lips to entwine and kiss
To let us absorb true love’s bliss...

This yearning seems to get stronger,
As we wait a little while longer 
To live our love in it’s true sense,
Without boundation or pretense….

A touch is all we need my love,
This touch will make you mine...
A touch is all we need to rise above
This wicked test of time……………..

Ek Ankahi Daasatan

Tried writing a Qawwali for the first time, Hindi-Urdu speakers would understand. Apologies to those who couldn't. Feedback appreciated!

Shayari toh ek zariya hai,
Baaki padhne wale ka nazariya hai...

Lakhon log sun lenge yeh alfaaz
Par yaqeen hai ki sirf tu jaan sakega
Inke peechee ka saaz...

Daastan ankahi hai, adhuri nahi
Aakhir mohobbat kamzori bane
Yeh zaruri nahi...

Jab Jannat-E-Ishq lage intikaam
Meri aql baadshah rahegi, aur tera husn aavaam,
Nazrein pherna koi tujhse seekhe
Kuchh is tarah zaleel kar jaate hain
Tere ilzaam teekhe...

Maine tera haath thaamna chaha,
Tune meri zubaan,
Haal-E-Dil bewakoofi kar baitha
Teri chaukhat par na-marz
Ho gaya kurbaan...........

Meri barbaadi teri taakat thi
Teri raahat; meri chaahat
Varna talvaar daagna meri khoobat hai
Nazar padte hi ishq ho
Is qadar khushnuma surat hai

Par koi nazar uthakar dekhe tujhe,
Yeh mujhe bardasht nahi
Tere badan par aanch na aaye...
Khuda-E-Ishq se yahi
darkhwast hai meri...

Daastan ankahi hai, adhuri nahi
Aakhir mohobbat kamzori bane
Yeh zaruri nahi............

Tu sada khush rahe, salaamat rahe
Yahi hai dua meri,
Tu mera nahi, fir bhi mere paas
Har waqt hota hai yeh ehsaas
Ki tu ab bhi zimmedaari hai meri...

Mere jaan-E-jigar, ab koi vaada na kar
Mujhe samjhana mat
Behlana, fuslana mat;
Kuchh is tarah hai tujhse mohobbat
Ki mera dil tera hai, par ab tere paas nahi
Tere vaar karne se...
ab gham ka koi ehsaas nahi...

Teri khatir haste haste fana hona
Yahi meri wafa hai
Tere lafz...teri nazar...
Ab khudse bewafa hain
Hum toot gaye, tujhe jodte-jodte
Aur tujhe lagta hai
Hum sirf khafa hain......................

Daastan ankahi hai, adhuri nahi
Aakhir mohobbat kamzori bane
Yeh zaruri nahi............
