Blood, blood and blood.

Her heart bursts

Again,

Her lap is full with her, “dead bled sons”

And her hands are tired; of burying them

In day and night;

In her heart’s graveyard;

Mourning and lamenting

Over the songs of freedom.


Source

Her lips are praying and praying

For the rain of peace,

But her eyes have seen the vultures

Hovering over the carcasses of doves;

Source

Blood, blood and blood

Her heart bursts

But she is calling her

Sons and daughters,





Awake, awake, awake

Not to surrender to evil

Teaching them

The lessons of sacrifice,





Source

Sovereignty and dignity

To save pak land

Keep their hopes alive.
