Independence Day!

Here’s what I think of-

14th August

Light raining falling softly off in the distance creating a background lullaby

Flags caressing the wind wherever you go

Hats Badges More flags

The constant drum of Dil Dil Pakistan echoing over and over again in my heart.

This is what I think of when I think of you.

Singing the national anthem at the age of three with my hand on my heart

Writing the national anthem down once, twice, again so I’d never forget

Singing it every morning all my life.

Here’s to 69 years
