Shamin Bashir Shah Poems

You gave me so much,
But I gave you nothing but pain.
You gave me the freedom I yearned,
But in return I bind you in chains.

On a wrinkled piece of paper,

I lay in extreme centre.

My body and soul has repeatedly been used, abused,
and thrown away as trash.
On that far corner, She cries softly over my ruined body,
not knowing that, I also bleed in pain.

Whenever I see the world around me
I see the terrible sights around me
I see children working around me
I see people, starving to death around me

As tears prick my eyes,
I hold down my cries.
Things that I fear,
Have atlas come so near.

The Best Poem Of Shamin Bashir Shah

I Am Sorry Pakistan On 14th August, Independence Day

You gave me so much,
But I gave you nothing but pain.
You gave me the freedom I yearned,
But in return I bind you in chains.
You gave me the identity,
But I took that from you.
You gave me a place I could call home,
But I left you scared, deserted and alone.
Oh! I am so sorry Pakistan,
Forgive me for burning you alive.
Forgive me for letting you down,
Forgive me for all the times a finger was pointed at you.
Forgive me for being silent at times when I had to stand for up for you.
Forgive me for giving you the recognition of a terrorist country,
Forgive me for making you the charity box.
There is so much to say,
And so much to apologize for…..
If you cut my veins, I bleed Pakistan,
I ache when you ache, Pakistan,
I am because of you, Pakistan.
Happy Birthday!

Young brains have a fresh energy if they utilize it.I appreciate that you are utilizing your energy to create poetry in younger age..Hope it ll help to trace the meanings of your existence in this world. You are a good poetess.If reader try he can enter into your river of vivid expressions, view a tide of sadness and grief of woman existence in your poems and easily unfold the hidden incident or sensitive turn in your life overwhelming your soul, body and mind...but in my opinion reader should not completely relate your poetry with biographical back ground and not consider you as first person singular or protagonist of your poems...No doubt sorrows of woman are vast but she has many faces and inner worlds you can depict in your poetry.Hope you ll explore new windows in future.
