Benazir Bhutto - A Tribute - Poem by Prakash F Madhwani

Benazir – God’s own gifted child,
Combo of beauty and brains, rare to find;
Spent most of her life in exile or in jail,
Yet, she remained noticed, without fail.

Jealousy, fear, what must we say,
Led her to her cruel end, this doomed day,
God! Had she not chosen this career –
She’d be content with family; and merrier.

Pakistan Peoples Party is now orphaned,
For God never makes her types too often;
Despite her beauty and oratory skills,
For a lavish life, coffers – well filled,
Her desire to serve the nation being strong,
Chose to serve society, not family; Was she wrong?

Her mortal remains will soon be buried,
But, “Daughter of the East”, will indeed –
Be immortalized in history forever,
She will remain in our hearts forever.

Whilst we seek from God, solutions for World Peace,
Benazir – we pray, May your soul rest in peace.
