Comments about Mahfooz Ali
Open them, open them
let the light shine,
Release the binds
of chains and twine.
Let spirit run free
let mind open its doors,
free of slavery
no more hard work and chores.
Perceive a life
with happiness and joy,
Equality and freedom
for every one.
Desire to be a part of it,
and now is opportunity to do so,
May express feelings
during the period
Run, fly, swim,
enjoy, delight in pleasure,
Reveal the beauty
The windows of Freedom encourage to treasure...
Oh mother, I am so weary; can you not
gather me in your arms and never let
me go. Oh mother, my arms are outstretched
in supplication, in supplication
for your embrace; but you are never here,
never near. I beseech you to hear my
voice crying; crying out for you; mother,
mother, mother, mother, mother.
