Country - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

Birds have no country,
fishes no country.
Rivers do not count Army or border.

Showing thumbs to all raising guns
and mighty kings,
the rivers move running
tearing all barbed wires of the border.

O Men, where have you got the border
and the border-guards?

    Yes, there lies the question - while all others can move freely, abundantly - why not human? It's our own mean minds' creation to fulfill some cheap egos..... well narrated. You read my ONE WORLD WITH ONE RACE. (Report) Reply

    Birds have no country,
    Fishes no country.
    Rivers count no Army, no Border.
    Well done, one day love peace and smiles are to thrive but only if we learn to crash the borders of our hearts beforehand.
