The Rarely Seen Afghanistan

Afg

‘Hello’ from Afghanistan

Hello! Do you hear me?

My colors are fading, my people are dying

I am crying for peace

I want the war to cease

My children are begging on the streets, suffering in the torching heat

They are the hope of the future- a future I can’t give

The war has torn me apart, I can’t ever forgive

Hello! Do you hear me?

My women are stoned and burned on the streets

I am a victim of “religion”-a religion I don’t believe

Is He watching me from the skies?

Is there anyone hearing my cries?

My men are beheaded, as if they don’t have a soul

Young and old are marching, asking why this violence?

We see them in pain, we see them suffering; yet there is silence

Hello! Do you hear me?

I am the land of beauty, embossed in magnificent mountains

My hills are glorious; my green lands are vivid

The world speaks of my hunger, poverty, war; I’m livid

I am the splendor of the region, the heart of the Silk Road

They call it the “war on terror”; I am crippled by nerves

They envy my lapis, my copper, my trillion dollar reserves

Hello! Do you hear me?

Give me the chance to bloom; give me the chance to shine

I believe in my youth; oh! they are full of vigor

Their devotion, their passion I need. It is their power I must savor

My hospitality is unmatched. My flavorful food, my colorful clothes are my mark

I will keep my wings open, my music loud; no matter how much you keep me in the dark.

Hello! Do you hear me?

I am Afghanistan.
