Flag of Pakistan

The Land of the Flag

The Land of the Flag

To the land of the flag;
green and white.
To the land of the rag;
shiny and bright.

To the land;
where pride and humility fight.
A stage so grand;
Hope shimmers through the night.

The lights flicker about,
and houses bow down to the dark.
The kids still continue to shout,
the dogs still bark.

to answer a longing,
the wind does blow.
It gives a sense of belonging,
and a shiver from head to toe.

In the land of the flag,
green and white,
the land of the rag,
shiny and bright.

And, the sun will shine.
the clouds re-align.
Between heaven and earth is a fine line,
yet this land is purely divine.

With rags and riches,
on high and low.
Despite the pits and ditches,
there’s some beauty still left to show.

In the land;
where pride and humility fight.
A stage so grand;
hope still shimmers through the night.

Where common sense,
isn’t common anymore,
and the brain gets dense,
with images of gore.

But a land of its own,
with its special flesh and bone.
Wonders are still shown.
In their land, their home.

The pollution, the noise,
continues to rise.
But for the young girls and boys;
hope never dies,

In the land of the flag,
green and white.
The land of the rag,
shiny and bright.

Bribery and deceits,
bring it down.
The corrupt political seats,
continuously make it drown.

Yet it still remains the land;
where pride and humility fight.
A stage so grand;
hope still shimmers through the night.
