Poem of the Unknown

 

On your breast lay

The deep scar of your enemy

But you standing cypress did not fall

It is your way to die.

 

In you songs of blood and sword

In you migrating birds

In you the anthem of victory

Your eyes have never been so bright.

 

KHOSROW GOLSURKHI (Executed 1972) (Taken from Fatima Bhutto’s Songs of Blood and Sword: A Daughter’s Memoir)
