My country has mountains
Warm weather
And bears many fruits

My country is like a mother
We must defend

People must serve our country
Because without our people
Our country has nothing

If we have peace, everyone can study
And we will develop our country

  1. “If we have peace, everyone can study”

    I don’t know if I will read a more profound, beautiful, yet haunting statement of truth. Your wish is so simple. Everyone should have this. Though clearly not everyone does. I wish peace for you and for your fellow countrymen&women. I wish wisdom for those who do enjoy peace, but take it for granted.

    Thank you for sharing this poem with us, Farishta. Please keep writing.

    All best,

    Yes, Farishta, your lovely poem under-lines that peace is like the air we need to survive. Without peace we cannot grow, realize our dreams. Our countries cannot grow. Keep writing Farishta, I hope the war-lords and others are reading your words and thinking about them.

  4. You state this so truly and so well.. Writing as you do helps bring awareness and is a way of helping to bring about peace.
