glorious past

Why we keep boasting of our glorious past?

our religious tolerance, our cultural heritage

our developed society, our booming economy

our diversity, our history, our spiritual heritage

we keep cursing the present and sit in a corner idle

we imprecate the current and stay irresponsible

we blaspheme out loud but do not perform or act

we condemn all around and stay most insensible

what we are is what is seen to the whole of world

no one can steal from us and even we can’t borrow

so why can’t we build ourselves a beautiful today

why can’t we stand and make a splendid tomorrow?
