1. Your Open Independence

Your open independence to pull back the cover
Shall infuriate your lover so, why bother.
“Maintaining the harmony, who would it proffer?
Tell me would those midnight stars gain any lustre…

Would she shoot her revolver…? ”

By Mark Heathcote

2. Fatherland

Though in hardship we may suffer,
We assure tomorrow with steadfast faith,
As a breed of people never subdued.
Though a few of us may act unfairly
And tarnish the name of our dear country,
The most of us are true good people,
With honor and hard work so abounding,
Revered by those who truly know us.

And yes we are called the Nigerians
A people differed in tribe and tongue,
With war in the past and strife at present,
We hold strongly to our sovereign freedom,
In loving strength and faith united,
To uphold that honor and that glory,
Of a people diverse but so industrious,
Remembering the labor of our heroes past.

Amidst the troubles, we count our blessings,
A dear native land with nature’s endowments,
Useful oil, cocoa, peanut, and manpower,
Moderate climate of rain and sunshine,
Kind to the production of diverse food.

With great vision and lofty heights attainable,
We can still make it if we honestly strive
For that nation where justice reign and peace endure.

By Oliver O. Mbamara


3. Shell Shock

Fourth of July whistles and blasts
erratic pops sounding like shots
bring back images from my past
things I thought I had long forgot

“Mind over matter- I’m okay”
I tell myself amid the din
but pretense quickly falls away
as panic rises from within

Shattering silence in the air
this booming breaks my fragile peace
like psychological warfare
it wears me down and will not cease

This hellish siege goes on all night
and will go on for days and days…
primal mind caught in fight or flight
(Oblivious, to them- it’s play!)

By GypsySoulPoet

4. Mid-August Independence

At the age of only five or six years
I saw that old woman who I think was in her teens
during the first war of independence in 1857.
I suppose her age was more than hundred years
in the early fifties of the last century.
She narrated a few painful stories.
What happened to the fighters of freedom
and how cruelly the British Imperialists
hanged them by neck till death on the tall trees.
But no woman was raped and no child was killed.

The mid-August independence stories
I read in books and heard from my seniors.
I am shocked how men became beasts

at the eve of independence!
When English rulers decided to quit India
though power was not yet transferred to the native leaders
millions of men including children were killed
women were raped and their breasts were cut.
The old woman commented
during the rule of white English men
law was enforced,
but in the rule of black native English men
humanity suffered more than what it suffered
in the days of slavery.
So I always welcome and celebrate 14th of August,
the day on which Pakistan was created,
with a mixed feelings.
I forget Bharat
but what happened in Pakistan
it was created to form an Islamic republic
and a welfare state.
Neither democracy could flourish in Pakistan
Nor Islam could become the law of the state.
During last seventy years almost half of the period
the nation was ruled by dictators.
No doubt in it
the country was industrially developed
economy was better
than that in the period of so called democratic leaders
and law remain enforced.
But isn’t it an irony that no elected Prime Minister

could complete his term in Pakistan.
In the early forties Muslims of this continent
were looking for a nation.
God blessed them with Pakistan
but now Pakistan is looking for Pakistanis.
Where are Pakistanis?
I see Pathans, Baluchis, Punjabis and Sindhis.
I want to congratulate a Pakistani on 14th of august,2017
for this great day of independence.
I went before a mirror to congratulate myself
my image in the mirror said, “Think twice
before you congratulate yourself,
are you a sincere and true Pakistani? ”
Still I am hopeful
when I saw my grandchildren
decorating the front of their house
with green flags of Pakistan.
I smiled.

By the grace of Almighty,
I have found Pakistanis
Happy Independence Day to the children of Pakistan.
I hope you’ll do that what we could not do.

By Akhtar Jawad

5. Independence Day

“It’s a great life if you don’t weaken. “My aunt Helen did confide.

She is somewhere north of eighty-four and never someone’s bride.

Her beau died in Korea, died to keep our country free,

“ At least that was the pious pap they tried to sell to me.”

So she lived a solitary life, watching horses round the rail.

She would hang around casinos too, the reason she’s so pale.

“There are no pockets in those things.” She told me at a wake.

“so you won’t catch me sitting home, that’s a big mistake.”

In these later years she might enjoy a second glass of wine.

She is fiercely independent; she is a good friend of mine.

So, if now and then thoughts scatter and she tells a tale again.

I smile and listen patiently. We all get there in the end.

By John F. McCullagh

7. Our Independence

Celebrating our Independence
Is a day we all look forward to
13 colonies were all there were
But so much there was to do

Brave and courageous men
Broke off from the mother land
But taxation was a problem
And they had to make a stand

They fought and were determined
And to them we give our thanks
For they were our forefathers
Definitely in the ‘higher’ ranks

Fireworks, food and music
Is one fun way we celebrate
God Bless America is played
As we fill our picnic plate

So while we enjoy our day
Let’s think about the guys
Who fought hard for our freedom
They are ‘heroes’ in my eyes!

By Marilyn Lott


8. Independence In My Thought

I think

My country will

completely be independent

When 15th august will be

A day more important

Than a simple celebration

‘Triranga’ will be

A flag more than a simple flag

The history Of independence

Will be more than

A chapter to be remembered

And the freedom fighters

Will be given respect

As a duty from core of heart

Treating more than

To show the formalities

Above all religion, cast

Above all economic status

And the so called aristocracy

In our society.

By Tadasha Tripathy
