Take Me To My Town by Masooma Ali

Take me to my town

I have lost my way

I was sent and told

Of a beautiful world

A world full of human

Peace and love

Beating in every hearts


But,

I couldn’t find a single drop of peace

My bones are shivering

Carrying on this barren road

There are screams of hunger

The voices of war

The bullets and blasts

Uh, creeping out my soul


Take me to my town

I have lost my way

Here is so dark

I’m so afraid of this way

Gloomy faces, gloomy souls

Governing their kingdom

Cheers-sing innocent blood

In their diamond cabernet glasses


They killed my family

Just for the little piece of their land

They washed all my beaming hopes

With the dark blood

Rolled down from my eyes

Of their fears

And their stormy wrath


O men,

I was sent from heaven

With a bunch of daffodils in hand

To share my part of peace and love

You blooded them

By your tumult

My heart is stained

By blood and blood

Even flowers are lost

In this valley of blinds and stoned hearts



Here’s me among evils

A single surviving Rose

Raising my hand for calling my Lord

To take me out of

This chaotic world

It seems he too has left

The kingdom of stones and blinds


Please, would you take me to my own town?

I have lost my way
