Far Off Neighbor - Poem by Jahan zaib

The world has entered a social age,
But we the two,
Races tribes and religions,
Feel pleased in others defeat,
Nothing to share nothing to celebrate,
No humor but ridicule,
Want not to be a platform,
Easily a hindrance though,
count you gains,
How many?
None?
Now take these losses,
No space to place them,
too many,
children orphan,
Women widowed,
mothers crying,
Sisters mourning brothers,

Enough you two,
Enough,
Your children deserve to be friends,
Teach them love,
The enmity ends,
Practice your religions,
Celebrate,
Customs and feasts,
But be the neighbors,
For each other,
A shelter, safety, support and helper….


Poet's Notes about The Poem

The title has its own story. Physically we two countries, Pakistan and India, are neighbors but the people of the two countries have gone away from each other. They should be stopped.

    Ah i wish India and Pakistan never be that far....by hands and hearts...different faiths and race not a barrier to be one. Maybe the history a bit hurt from past but for future is the time we will live, so do it better for both and for all countries..we are one, you maybe different as they too but nothing is same, that is how unique for each person, race and nation is...but truly we are in one nation of earth but in different big district call countries...no barriers just love_Soul (Report) Reply

    Actually blood brothers for thousands of years
    now blood ememies serving a one God of both
    killing each other over the same God sound foolish?
    It is. (Report) Reply

    Neighbours are meant to help each other, provide support in distress..I wish the two great nations understand the same. We all are human beings made of the same red blood and having a heart inside. Hats off to you sir! (Report) Reply

    Teaching in poetry is more freedom than an advice shape..thus i think this is the best method...and you are using it for love to teach love for all by a pen_Soul (Report) Reply

    Dearest neighbour,
    I wish that our entire country listen to this.......

    And teach their children that they deserve to be friends
    Teach them love......

    When I meet people like us often I wonder why are there even problems between us? ? ? You aint against me neither am I against you.... You seek peace I do too..... Why are we then like we are? ? ?

    Anyways...... Your this piece was magical... Loved it.
    Plus the message you wrote for your daughter...... Heart-touching! ! !

    I loved this.....
    Going through this.... I must confess, you've inspired me to write something like this too....
    I sure will represent this side......
    We seek peace....

    Never dropp writing..... You rock! ! !
