This is one poem I wrote as a tribute to the September, 11 victims and a crime against mankind. I found this poem which I had written long back. Feels nice to get it back.
This is a poem dedicated to the King of Pop – Michael Jackson. His songs brought the world closer no matter which country, which class, creed you belong to.
To MJ, A tribute.
You came into this world, our loving MICHAEL
and reached in the world of music, the PINNACLE
You, we love as “The King of POP”
Without you, the music world is a Full STOP.
Your songs ‘n’ dance to millions, CAPTIVATED
and to equally millions, your videos, MOTIVATED
To learn and pick the dance style that’s UNIQUE
To us, you are our own and truely UNIQUE
A Tribute to our Bravehearts
Every citizen will pray for your dear souls. Every one of us will remember the martyrs and you will live in our hearts forever.
Here are a few lines honouring our brave men.
When on Mumbai, terror again struck
On the 26th of November, night
little did the crowds knew, that they did be stuck
on the streets like a sitting duck.
Terrorists, with minds dark and mean
Came to Mumbai, with devil’s intentions
To strike terror, never before seen
and hold the city to ransom, unforeseen.
People, our own and our friends
from lands far away, beyond the seas
had been in the city, to make and meet friends
but life to ’em, did befriend.
In the crisis, In times of need
Our policemen to the rescue came
With hearts brave, to do the good deed.
Thou’ fell to the bullets, to join the martyr’s creed.
Our soldiers, beloved and brave
To thee, we salute, with our soul ‘n’ hearts
The onslaught, with conviction, your braved
and a major crisis to our country, you staved.
To all the martyrs, we stand in silence
and pray for your dear souls,
In times like this, thou’ve shown resilence
to save many, with your will ‘n’ persistence.
