Poem By Akhtar Jawad
How happy were my sweet and lovely grandchildren!
Ahead of them was a vacation planned to be passed
I remember the day when their exams were over,
Joys of class rooms were completely outclassed,
The joy of passing the vacation with father,
Working abroad for the future of children,
Helpless before the devil of unemployment,
Hardships of men and sacrifices of women!
Having passed the vacation that was full of fun,
Having performed pilgrimage in the holy land,
Happier they looked at the Karachi Airport,
Being hugged and kissed by the parents grand,
I am listening to the sounds of grandchildren,
Getting ready to proceed to schools once more,
I saw the kids making preparations yesterday,
Vacation they enjoyed but school they adore!
