A Cry For Motherland


A different world it is out here,
'none like you have ever known;
it's a jungle of arms and spear,
a very thin line between life and hell;
the seige of death had tamed the strong,
men lived; only in their thoughts-
might and strenght our greatest foe,
peace and unity a mere cliche,
the hope for freedom a figment of ours;

A different world it is out here,
'none like you have ever seen;
i see a wall of hardship and fear,
misery and pain had strained our voices,
a bloody flood defiled our land-
If motherland could give a sigh,
she'll weep and wail
for her land is soiled;
deeply soiled with innocent blood!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
