Martyrdom

Martyrdom

A Poem by irenic
"

It is the poem about Yom e Shuhada. it is day when our Pakistani Army martyred or you ca say the day of Martyrs.

"
"What's your last wish?"
Asked pongo to his pongo friend
A paper taken out by his friend
From the pocket with shivering bloody hand
Blood dropping down, he passed
In the centre of fighting ground lying with few breathes he mourned and panted
"give it to my mum and dad" 
"go and give it", to worker pongo ordered 
"with the verdure of martyrdom I am blessed
With the great honour I am blessed
With irenic of aeolian in heaven I am blessed
For me my mom you prayed
On me my dad you trusted
That's why today with virtuous honour I am awarded
By the painter of the world
I fought bravely on the ground
For my land
Because for my patriotism filled heart you prayed 
That is why I could
To the one who sent me in world
Under the canopy don't mourn mum and dad
My soul would be sad
My mum, treasure of gold
Don't lose your shining my gold
Never larchymose but be proud 
On my success, I desired and deserved
Mum of pongo's friend 
Folded the paper, she mounrned 
But then smiled 
On being the mother of son who was blessed
This is an excerpt poem written by pongo's pongo's friend
At night before his martyrdom and after his dad's wish.

A great piece, The pride and consolation that martyrdom brings is a strange and ambiguous emotion for the world to imagine, let alone understand. You've put the essence of it very aptly in this piece. Great work :) Cheers

Powerful use of words and thoughts.
"To the one who sent me in world
Under the canopy don't mourn mum and dad
My soul would be sad
My mum, treasure of gold
Don't lose your shining my gold
Never larchymose but be proud "
The above lines stood for me. Asking to be celebrated in death. Not tears. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

Than you for appreciation. :)
I don't think the theme of this poem and the characters were worthy of Martyrdom, its easy to write a poem on martyrdom but we should exactly know who are the real martyrs.... People in Gaza are martyrs , people of Badr are martyrs so thats the only criticism i have have although technically I didnt found any fault in this poem.

Martyrdom for God, country holds a special place in many religions and cultures. As long as it is not for evil. Heaven is their reward. An excellent write...:).......
