It’s the love…

Water flowing,
Fires burning,
Hearts beating,
People breathing,
Is that what constitutes life?
Is that how we survive?

It’s the tears that keep flowing,
It’s the hope that keeps burning,
It’s the smiles that make us live.
It’s the joy that makes us breathe.

It’s the love that makes our hearts beat.

The same

I was an exchange student once you see,
I saw a whole new world,
a different place,
a different stage,
another culture,
another space,
People wore different clothes,
had different parties,
celebrated other events,
danced to different music.
But the differences were few,
the similarities were huge.
They too liked to love,
They too liked to share.
Smiling was a habit,
Caring wasn’t rare.

We might look different,
we might see different,
but we are the same.
Worldwide.

Be generous next time.

How much effort does it take
to say
I like it.
I love it.
You rock.
You make me proud.
I knew you had it in you.
I was rooting for you.
These few words can
make somebody’s day
can make somebody smile
can fill them with joy
can fill them with happiness.
So be generous next time,
make somebody feel special.

Loved.

On my birthday how do I feel?
A little happy?
No No
Some more?
No No
A lot?
Yes!
Why, you ask?
It’s not ’cause..
I feel wiser..
or more mature.
It’s not ’cause..
I am older
or more grown up.

I am happy

’cause I feel loved.

What I see!

Where you see bombings,
I see mountains.
Where you see firing,
I see rain.
Where you see pain..
I see joy.
Where you see cries,
I see smiles.
Where you see suffering..
I see charities.
Where you see fire..
I see love.
Where you see desert,
I see colors.
Where you see illiteracy,
I see scientists.
Where you see oppression,
I see freedom.
Where you see old,
I see youth.
Where you see terrorists,
I see healers.
Where you see faults,
I see beauty.
Pakistan isn’t just what you see,
It is also what I see!
It is mostly what I see!
