Shamin, this is a great poem. This has a lot of emotion in it and sounds deep from the heart. It inspires me that I should write a poem to my country. Our Independence Day is July 4. It was brave of you to publish this in the face of so much political unrest. Thank you for sharing this excellent poem. Keep up your good work.
