The Leaf of Grass
By:  Dr. Maqsood Jafri

A touching sight turned the course of my jovial life.
The fragrant roses were in the company of thistle.
I found every soul in the aura of struggle and strife.
The thorns under the petals are an alarming whistle.

The leaf of grass with sharp edge was more than a knife.
It cut my finger and oozed the blood like a fast stream.
The blood of the suppressed is like ransom or as a fife.
The down trodden only live in the world of dying dream.

The Nature is kind and docile with pricking painful pikes.
Either we ride over this steed or get trampled under hooves.
The nations who conquer the storms; the nature only likes
To subdue before them with the cozy groats and grooves.

The leaf of grass shows us the glorious and gorgeous ways.
We have to escape its' bite and cut the roots of the toxic tree.
The beams of the moon and the Sun with scorching warm rays
Teach us the secrets how to live like a nation forceful and free.
