Holy Month of Ramazan has gone.
When fasts restrain and make us patient
It trains in self negation strengthening belief;
Teaches the art of giving and forgiving
eating nor drinking,important is simple living
purifying body cleaning spirit so sinning
This Holy Month is a blessing a celebration
a night's prayer equals thousand nights meditation
obedience tolerance solution solutions to solutions
but whyPeople are praying for peace and relief
from social holy disturbances of disbelief-
This month is destined to end on a happy note
and it did- but not for all, today or tomorrow
There are now regions of sorrow-Threats of shooting killing blasting
OH There is Providence in the Fall
Of a sparrow-
Has conscience made a coward of us All?
What has Man achieved since the Great Fall
or The Deluge
Made this world a Hell with No Refuge?
OH Where is The Heaven we Lost?
Ah at what price at what cost?
Gone are the Days of Peaceful sojourning
when flutes blew notes of tunes so sweet
when words were words of love and treat
when horses trotted on the cobbled street;
a lone policeman was enough on the beat
and innocent laughter filled the backseat
there was no winning losing or defeat
no charge no 'Forward March' or Retreat'
who is the Master ? Thief?
Who are we trying to cheat ?
I am no Queen of Itheca
nor the Goddess Athena
I still have not made My Pilgrimage
To Holy Madina!
I am in pain in my soul and spirit
A nation bleeds and will bleed
Captive Refugees in threatened countries
Call Aloud Oh Hear Ye People of The World
See, hear, read’
I too have a terror filled, uncertain, but
a Brave Odyssey!
