Mother of Peace – A poem by Rehana Nazli

O Mother of peace
My land,
The young and old and those unborn
What do you need?
All give their lives to nurture your bones
Your ever-thirsty skin,
Absorbs blood like water

Your lush green farms
Don’t feed the poor
Your flooded rivers
Wash away what we hold
Your screams and cries
Break hearts of mountains cold

Our sleepless nights and shattered dreams
Your friendly skies are poring rain
Our nights of hope so dark, so long,
Waiting for a morning break

O, mother of peace
What would make you fulfilled?
We hope to see your face glow
With sunshine of pride you uphold
Winds which carry love divine
Fragrant gardens, rainbow skies
O mother of peace
Forgive our faults
Hold us in your lap

Like our own mother sweet
Hold us in your warm embrace

Rehana Nazli
