Zindabad

Civilizations thrived and shaped under these skies

Kingdoms ruled and survived these golden soils.

Your fabric absorbed every invasion, every blow

And colored itself into a rainbow-

As together as it is diverse- a composite,

A patchwork quilt, so exquisite,

That, when conflicts threatened to unravel,

A common thread of belonging

Held each fragment together.

  

May we live to be worthy to carry your name.

May we learn give, forgive.

O rainbow among nations,

Long live.

When thoughts began to rhyme,
And lines found a heartbeat,
I transformed from a dentist to a poet.

Z(ee)-topia!
