Find a Way

I look at them & feel a connection
in them I see my own reflection
then why have we grown so much apart
why have we lost all regard

Its not long ago we were still one
but why now in between has come a gun
just because someone drew a line across our lands
we still could have held on to each others' hands

The sad truth is now we are two
noone knows when & due to who
dont tell me those two dates in august
sometime before must love have left us

Some of ours still live across the line
rather all across the line are like mine
then why are we reason for each others' agony
giving others' a reason to laugh at our irony

We all need to think of a solution
a solution to restore the relation
like it or not, next to each other we have to stay
so together we will have to find a way

Daughter of a Daughter

She said I want to study

To fight the world I want to be ready

But I will take care of you my child, said her mother

Soon she was married against her wish by the father

She toiled in the day, she cried in the night

Her mother couldn’t do anything about her plight

She was left alone & unequipped in her fight

Soon she was blessed with a child

Overjoyed with emotions she couldn't control her smile

But the husband seemed sad, he said, “I wanted a boy”

She said, “She is my boy & she will be my joy”

It was made sure the child went to school

The husband banished the child & acted as a fool

The mother made sure the daughter didn’t lack any tools

The child went on to be a bright child & a great daughter

She even allured her stubborn father

“Do you want a boy” asked the wife one day

He said, “No, as from me I don’t want any of her love to be taken away”
