Rememberence

Genocide, holocaust, state-sponsored terrorism,
One nation under tyranny, complete schism.

Why does the GOI fear us?
because they cannot subdue us.

Why did the British and the Brahmins infiltrate?
Their inadequacies, their fear, their hate.

What we fought for then, we fight for today,
justice, equality, a fair say.

What plagued us then plagues us today,
apostasy, ignorance, division, dismay.

Our only support is your holy name,
Constant rememberence is our aim.

That grace which comes from you is our only hope,
Not land, not maya, your kingdom is our scope.

You gave us a holy throne to protect,
to revere and never neglect.

When the masses began to sleep,
you awoke us from a slumber deep.

Your holy throne was sacrificed,
your sacred panth was shot and sliced.

The Khalsa panth took notice, this shall never happen again,
We shall live righteously, the Khalsa will reign.

The court of man is slow and inept,
the court of God is what we accept.

Your will shall not anger us, it shall make us strong,
We are the Khalsa, to your terrority do we belong.

Raj Karega Khalsa!

Prabhu Singh - once again you amaze me with your creativity and passion. The line "The court of man is slow and inept, the court of God is what we accept" - is very apt and you may have unknowingly (or knowingly) transcreated the Guru's revelation "pura niao kare kartar, apune das kao rakhanharu" by Nanak V in Rag Gauri on page 199 of Guru Granth Sahib.

Prabhu singh ji,
You have creativity.You write very nice poems.You have written "The court of god is what we accept".Guru Nanak says in Japuji "Kiv Sachiara Hoyie Kiv kurey Tootey paal,Hukam Rajai Chalna NANAK likhiya Naal"So how can you become truthful? And how can the veil of illusion be torn away?O Nanak, it is written that you shall obey the Hukam of His Command, and walk in the Way
of His Will"We should strive to be khalsa (pure).That is possible by Naam simran and WAHEGURU,s GRACE

WoW! This is my favourite poem from you. VEry very well written and thought:

"What we fought for then, we fight for today,
justice, equality, a fair say.

What plagued us then plagues us today,
apostasy, ignorance, division, dismay"

"Your will shall not anger us, it shall make us strong"

Prabhu,
You are such an inspiration. Generations aways from the Guru's Land but with a heart and soul of aching Punjab.

God bless you with all the Chardi Kala for all times to come.
