I Wish We Were~ - Poem by Asif Baloch

I wish we were
Like birds
No bounds, no boundaries
No borders

Free spreading wings
Flew in sky's
Hop in meadows
Singing heart desires
Whole world as home
Single room enough
To survive
No struggle for royalties
No sleepless nights

I wish we were
Like breeze
No bounds, no boundaries
No borders

Floating around
With ease
North, south, east, west
As pleased
Playing with flowers
With tease
No captivating thoughts
Just released
Feeling butterflies
Tender feets
Following bees
Buzzing fleet

Alas! Balouch
I wish we were
Like those humans
No bounds, no boundaries
No borders

Angelic heart and
Devine soul to feel
Created with love
And peace
Made lords on
All other breeds
Fruits, flowers, honey
To get pleased
No satanic thoughts
No devilish greed
With love and loyalty
Treating everyone
As free
