December 25th – Birth of Pakistan’s Charisma by Hafsa Mumtaz

Hafsa Mumtaz | Jan 3rd, 2022 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

they say why do you always complain
about the evil that is woven through us
is there no good that prevails in our souls
is there nothing to appreciate or applaud
its easy to complain than to fix
i know it and yet i say show me the good
that is there in us as a nation show me the
good that is there in us as representatives
show me the good that is there in us as
Muslims as servants to our state
because i know that somewhere somehow
within us there something good as humans
but i inquire do your Friday prayers wash
away your ill intent your greed and the sins
you commit harming humans because Allah will spare you if you intentionally skip a prayer but He wont spare you if you break a heart if you inflict pain upon your fellows

they say we love the Father of our nation
hoisting Pakistani flags attiring green and
posting statuses of Quaid-e-Azam’s quotes
and this faithfulness and obedience to the
great man ends right here
no one would bother understanding what
he exhorted to us as youth as a state as a
nation

they say its Christmas but since im a Muslim
id rather say its the birth date of Charisma

they say I’m a pessimist but id say i believe it
when Edward Bond said that he’s an optimist
by nature and a pessimist by experience
