When I first met you
In your lap I was
I felt like I had known you forever,
telling you everything
And what I didn’t
You knew it by my face
I bet you thought It’d never end,
Who would have even thought
You would leave me like that
When in my hands, your head was
Over a period of time,
I got to learn you
A person so caring and gentle,
With a heart so true
You’ve survived your life
Left us with hurt and loneliness
I told you I’d never leave
Because of the feelings I have inside
I know You
Like no one I have ever known,
And sometimes I wondered
I would be nothing without you
So I have decided
Not to leave you alone
Will come to you daily
No wall, no being can separate us
I love the way we were together,
You used to make me smile
With you I was, You
Now am not even me
Remember me always
and I will too
I always think of
Me and you
And you, Oh you
You are gone…
Though your love was deep
Though my love was deep
Centuries are gone by, mindsets, norms and values are changed. Numbers of people have adopted optimistic living styles but still the society is full of pessimists too. For many, life is incomplete without cursing others.
This taught me , that every living being go through a dark moment but if we keep on cursing it , either it will make us a moron or we end up a death. So we must believe on the fact that all the darkness in the world can not extinguish the light of a single candle. At times in lonesome nights I question myself and seek for the answer that what is the reason that it gets too difficult for people to lit a candle? If they are unable to lit it , then they do not have any rights to curse others. Keeping in mind the fact that they themselves are the roots of curse. To light a candle is to cast a shadow. Whenever somebody tries to light a candle, he defines his character through it and becomes inspiration for others and the chain of inspiration and admiration goes on as a single candle can light up many more. Candles tell us that we live by learning as much as we burn ourselves people get light from us. This is a special reason that our teachers our known as candles because they consume their energy to enlighten us with the knowledge they possess.
What are terrorists? What is terrorism? Why is there so much talk about it? Why do people fall prey to them? These are some of the questions asked by many of us. The elders try to answer them but they can’t satisfy the needs of those who have plenty of questions. These plenty of questions also arise in patriotic minds who have urge to save their land but their strive goes to vain when there is no one to support them.
Despite many warnings and preventive measures, the number of terrorism victims is continuing to increase. Most of the people who have nothing to do fall prey to these terrorists, they ruin their as well as the lives of innocents. This is an alarming situation.
Nowadays, terrorists look like religious people so no one can differentiate between a terrorist and a real religious man. These are the people who live in the world of fantasy just living with a thought of “fake paradise”. It is not just the fault of those who fall prey but also of the government because they are not providing work to these workless people who are caught in the net of terrorism. As it is said:
“Poverty is the reward of honest fools.”
The victims to brainwashing (to conduct terrorist attacks) are mostly honest including little children living in a world without luxuries. They belong to poor families wasting their precious time wandering to and fro. Sometimes this poverty leads them to be a terrorist. They take lives of those who are out to gain knowledge in educational institues or religious places like mosques. They don’t know that taking lives of innocents is a big sin. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) advised to seek knowledge even if one has to travel to china.
These terrorists have no religion but they often use the name of Islam and hence blame this holy and peaceful religion. They are brainwashed.
How our country is so easily caught in the net of terrorism? Usually people who enter our country through borders are not checked properly. They are the ones spreading terrorism, kidnapping innocent people, and providing the wrong sinful knowledge of religion. Once someone falls victim to it, it is very difficult to shake them off and revert them to a peace loving state of mind or sometimes it is very late as they have already blew themselves off. Because of this, sometimes sole earners of families are ruined and become unable to support their families. We must join our hands to maintain hope and we must try to return those honest fools a normal life. Together we all can do it. We should all contribute to make our beloved country Pakistan a peaceful and prosperous country.
