Hazar Imam’s Golden Jubilee – by Amir Samji

We are in year of Golden Jubilee celebration

Contemplating ways how to begin deliberation

Such events comes once in lifetime to be in session

Have to think meaning of; and define its definition

If we think where were; and where we are

Let’s begin from 1957 don’t go; any further far

I remember those days socially we were at war

Fighting day and night to come out of that war

Slowly and gradually we were moving our cars

Suddenly Mowla injected jet fuel in 1942 cars

That sped up development to see beyond stars

His vision accelerated developments with no wars

In all walk of life moving with Godspeed so far

Soon will be at peak; to be with others at par

Virtually owning a country with no land so far

Mowla is the king; His obedient servants; we are

World amazed; how this happened with no army and wars

This is the outcome of His Vision beyond; Galaxy of Stars

I’m dreaming off to start celebration in my kingdom of stars

Angels; and Fairies are jubilant to come down from Mars!
