It Was Just A Dream

It Was Just A Dream

A politician came, high on fame,
removed corruption ,poverty,rapes,
Opposition lacked any charges on his name,
cheaper are oil,onion,potato and grapes.

then I heard a scream and realized that it was just a dream.

A girl in a dress tight, on lonely road in night,
soon surrounded by so many men,
To help her in reaching home,they started to fight,
she reached home safely without any strain,

then I heard a scream and realized that it was just a dream.

A poor village boy, playing with a toy,
All children of his age studying in school,
Childhood is without burden and full of joy,
they all are happy, healthy and cool,

then I heard a scream and realized that it was a dream.

A small nation is in full elation,
As it is now free,world was free,
there is peace in the world and satisfaction,
World is growing like a family tree,

then again I heard a scream and realized that it was my dream.

Don't bother, if now they are not  reality,
We will succeed, these dreams gives this surety.

  4. Ah! What a beautiful message, Cifar! When I read the first paragragh, I was wondering who it could be, then realised that it was just a dream. The second and third raised a question in my heart, and the last made me think - will it come true?
