Which Country Is This? - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

Which country is this?
Why people are starving here?
Is it that the taxes are excessively high or corruption is letting the people high and dry.

Which country is this?
Why people are rebellious here?
Is it that there is no Laws & order or rule is not in harmony with population?

Which country is this?
Why people are living in oneness and have become indifferent to death?
Is it that the leaders are oppressive here or someone is ruling with iron fist?

Which country is this?
Why people are so bright yet they leave their country and reside elsewhere?
Is that they don’t get basic amenities or living style is not at par with developed nations?

Whatever be the reasons, no country on the face of earth is ideal place to live,
Why don’t you come to my dreams and reside there,
There humans are like birds, no boundaries, no security check and no crimes
All are living happily without any arms.

    Brilliant write and so true it could be about any country that dictates and uses their power to keep ordinary people down leaving them with just their pride that makes them travel to find their dream place to have a better life! (Report) Reply
