Let My Country Awake..............

Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

When the mind is set without fear
When the word speaks without lie
When the heart is free from dirt
When the knowledge earns without waste
When the hatredness dies without curse
When the love lives without trouble
When the freedom showers without crush
When the nature hugs without anger
When the heaven throws its blessing without limit
When the silent march forward to the freedom
Let my country awake.

    I should have said based on. I can see that you have adapted it but I think it's inspiration should be credited.

    Birds of love take to the blue skies,
    man and man gets bound in humane ties,
    truth will rise and triumph over lies,
    into such beautiful dawn of freedom.....let ur country awake! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !(Report)Reply

    when the eyes of sleeping giant are wide open
    and the ears of mankind are close
    will there be any development?
    or terrorism will always continue...(Report)Reply
