1 Poem by Rehan Qayoom


Fight for your word and fight for your right
Fight at daytime, fight at night
Fight this battle between darkness and light
Show your courage reveal your might

Fight at midday noon and eve
Plot what your foe cannot conceive
Show this world what you can achieve
Show them the magic of what you believe

Who are they to stop us they cannot decide
What is right or wrong, for god is on our side
God is our master his prophet our guide
We shall build a heaven in which man shall abide

This is the war to put an end to war
Fighting then shall be no more
Back in the arms of the one you adore
Whose pain kept beckoning you back ashore
