A Holy Call


Country needs freedom
Common men has seen it seldom
There is no fresh induction of slavery
It is concern of everybody

Normal man thinks about nation
With all kind of international relations
Peaceful struggle and bloody wars
Scientific research and existence of stars

States fight with narrow end
With no cordial relation as friends
No feeling of neighborhood
Forget about nationalism and brotherhood

National wealth is not fully explored
Poor remain to suffer and ignored
In such condition people rise in revolt
And prove stubborn as tough bolt

Leaders give call but with self interest
Nobody sees it as crucial test
Nation must survive at any cost
It is dreamed by the mist of the people

    Dear Hasmukh,
    You write as if you take this medium seriously, and I commend you for it. English is a tough language in which to express your self with eloquence. I strongly recommend that you ask a good Eglish speaker to take a look at your poems before you post them so that the errors in grammar do not mar what you are trying so well to say.
    For example,
    Country needs freedom
    Common men has seen it seldom should read - Common men have seen it seldom
    or Common man Has seen it seldom.

    Are you with me here?

    Readers must get fair idea of concept.. the power to express and more of it is to reach people.
