When Waves Of Tyranny Recede

When waves of tyranny recede

And tide comes home,

Scores will be settled

Forever, my friend!

Don't fret, don't lose hope,

Sun is but a night away.

Spirits will be aflame, let this cold night pass,

And bright summer morn will smile,

Upon our cold shoulders.

When Waves of Tyranny Recede - A Poem by Shafqat M.

Smile, dear friend!

Angels of mercy await one last reckoning

For cloak of justice to wrap you in.

And the cruel will have nowhere to go.

Their gold-bedecked robes of tyranny

Have days numbered till they fray

And shred after shred, they will lie exposed,

Till scores are finally settled, my friend!
