Treasure Island

Maryam M.Rifat Zanjir

Heavenly prayer


I look up in the sky
In a cold silent night
I galnce a white star
Will poverty be that far?
We are living a war worlds
We do nothing but hope
Everyone by his own
No unity no goal

I kneel on my knees
Close my eyes end my fears
Down the pain down the tears
I have no worries I’m free

I open my eyes I cry
For the poor kid for the starving child
God’s mercy we need I realize
This earth can be a paradise

I look around the space
Will you god end this game?
As a gentle breeze feels my face
I whisper a heavenly prayer in faith

I pray for you all people
I pray for every child
To find your missing freedom
To watch the change rise

God please answer me
Your blessing is so near
To change is my hope
We need your wisdom in this globe
May you bless us all?
May you answer my call?

I stand up again
I’m determind not to fail
I will satrt giving today
Do always keep the faith

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
