The Journey- (14th August 1947 to 14th August 2012)

Long time ago
The dreamers once met
To ponder and to reflect
We need a land
Where we can exercise
The mind and its expression
We need a home
Where we can practise
The strength of our beliefs
The notions of our existence
To build from our past
And to look
Towards the future
The people and their welfare
As the voices began to find
Its echo and its stamps
To lead and to live
In peace,
With our minds and hearts
As began
The journey of this nation

From the days of the migration
To the mayhem of our present
The debacles that followed
The torture that surfaced
And the brilliance of few
That became a comfort
Still in us, enough to shine
The resilience of the nation
And the dreams of innovation

The moments have arrived
As the sunlight breaks the distance
The trails of the darkness
As the change and its arrows
Announces its presence
The stillness to be shattered
Through the corners of our eyes
The deserts and it’s mountain
The longings
of the rain and it’s spring
The country of the youth and it’s dreams
Time has come to honour,
The remembrance of our future
Celebrate we should
As the darkness lifts its veil
Let the heart find its rhythms
Let the soul find its beat
Let the dreams finds its pace
Let the nation find its scope

The country and its dimensions
In hands,
The millions stars
In green and white
No longer the whispers
As hands form the Dua and the will
To survive, the surrender not an option
Only the tears of joy to offer
The huge sacrifice that was once offered
Let us remember
the nation and those hands
The freedom we have, let that be known
To discard the chains of ignorance
We must change, we must embrace
Ourselves, all that forms
The country it is,
The nation it will be
The crescent and the stars,
Engulfed in green and white
It belongs to you, it belongs to me
It belongs to all of us

Let’s own,
The promise and its hope
what we can offer,
Our endeavours,
For the future,
The darkened days to surrender
As the morning dew announces its arrival
I am Pakistan and here I stand
Let the world witness
 Not the misconceptions
And our faults
But the strengths and what we can offer
Let’s lit up the sky
With actions and our struggle

Once upon a time
The dreamers once met,
As the history coiled in its pages
The magic and its potions
 The course and direction
Upon the shores of the ocean
Where now stands
The confusion and its destruction
Let’s not forget what we have
the courage and the reason
The world within we live and breathe
Let not the mayhem and corruption rule
Let the change and progression
Enter our lives and peace
The fountains of tranquillity

Once upon a time
The dreamers once met
Remember them
In them you will find
The display
The direction of our future
The old journey upon the sea
As he contemplated
The old sojourn in Heidelberg
Where he pictured
the dreams of our future
As the civilisation unfolded it’s charms

Let’s build what we can
And offer to the rest
As the passions that carried
The time and its dimensions
let’s not surrender
The conscience and its soul
to those who saw the opportunity
To plunder and to loot
Let this conscience become the light
As we travel far, to the moments of time
As this Universe unfolds its charms
We have come to reclaim
Our home and our domains
The glories of the past
The pearls of our future
As we travel far,
in the distance of our past
Of this existence and its dimensions
As this Universe unfolds its charms,
To carry us far,
The displays of our struggle
Through the echoes
Long time ago, the dreamers once met.
