Why countries are simply invaded?
Do the other countries are principally wedded?
Does their ethnic love and belonging firmly embedded?
The country’s territory annexed and added
Is it grand design to form a powerful block?
The bell should ring as per their time in clock
Will their aim succeed and keep together the flock
Fire will be raging inside giving room for smoke
It is how the nationalism and patriotism suffer
Small countries cease to exist and work as buffer
They may lie low but not at the cost of national pride
No one will tolerate the insult and shame to newly bride
They prefer to have sway and hegemony
Every occasion availed with grand ceremony
Show of strength with power and money
Why should they bother for peace and harmony?
You can’t suppress the strong nationalism?
Can’t stop it with propaganda or journalism?
Patriotism and nationalism are simple words
Many lost kingdoms even with powerful lords
History may not repeat with glorious past
Doubts should not be raised and apprehensions cast
Peace should given a chance to long it last
Nothing should be at stake as actions should be fast
Time has passed as nations used to bully
Bloodbath and humiliation not realized fully
It is emergence of universal brotherhood and faith
People are aware and not afraid of death
You may subjugate and rule the land
Reign of terror with firm iron hand
National insult and wounds may not be healed
Agony and pain can not be revealed
It is how we respect the sentiments,
Not to violate any space in continents
Respect to territorial integrity in sincerity
Respect to land and overall sovereignty
Millions want to live with peace and honour
Atrocities and tales may serve as horror
Commitments, if any, must be as clear as mirror
Why not we bid farewell to fear and terror?
