Just taken from the News in May

With more death of children in the city of Peshawar, I am saddened by the loss of so many families.
The cheers of children playing soccer on a field in Lahore were silenced by those same extremists who caused the tears of loss in Pakistan.
We must stop the fighting.
We must save the children.
With some of the events that have taken place in Lahore in the last few days, I wanted to bring this piece up to the top.

I took a Daewoo bus
back to Lahore
feeling Tears and Joys for going
back to Lahore.
To the warmth of a home
and an empty field
there were few cheers going
back to Lahore.
There is Peace there now
said young Ibrahim
the eldest of six boys going
Back to Lahore.
A tourist unknown, from an oft traveled path,
dreams of the foods and the spirits leading
Back to Lahore.
Long life and prospers going
Back to Lahore.
