My Country


My country has no flag
A free wind flapping its existence
On every thing it touch
I know its the foam of clouds
Running on an oceanic skies
Hailing on journeys
Without boundaries of man-made
Running free without restraint of electrical siege

My country is an ocean
Reflecting the color of the sky
Or the color of emerald green
Reflecting all the hidden weeds
It lies there in deepwater
Even over the coral reef
It represents all the waves
In a form of many size
Free waves that embraces many shores

My country has no territories
It does not belong to any ethnical race
Nor does it embrace any religion
Just a free essence
Standing without being biased
Patriot in following good values
My country has no name
Its in the tiniest cell of all the creation of God

I’m the fruit of mother earth
I’m a child of one nation
That has no territories and boundaries
And when my time is up
I will return back
To the soil of this earth

I'm with Enigma, Nasra: this sounds like a place I'd love to spend the rest of my life in. When's the earliest flight in?

nasra, i would love for all people to think this way. we are all one yet sometimes pointing out our differences separate us as oppose to just adding to us.

i wish for a world like this and although it might never exist outwardly, at least it exists within us who believe this way.

beautiful poem :)

hi nasra,
like your country. i am not sure who it was, it migt have been gandhi, who said that we have to be the chance we would like to see in the world. so i guess many places could potentially be the ones we dream about.
