It's a short story which is being told by a lady visiting her home town for the first time...!!!

 I wasn’t born there,
 nor have gone there
 but yes I know,
 great history of my town
 my home town!

 When I was a kid,
 he fulfilled my wish
 now with his last breathe
 he told me his wish…

 To bury him in his town
 town with the soil he came from

 With terror,
 I left my country to fulfill his wish
 with moist eyes i waved my daughter a kiss…

 As I reached the place
 I saw a colossal of mud,
 mud of red color
 probably the reason was
 color of the liquid
 running in every body…

 I waved a hand to a little kid sitting there
 God knew if he cared!

 He looked at me unemotionally
 his face showing scars,
 may be, his cloven foot aching so far

 I asked about his parents
 he with rough look
 took away his eyes
 his eyes annoyed at my question was deep enough

 My father died in war
 A war of unknown

“A Persian “soldier” died
 fighting for “Persia”
 “for” the people of “Persia”
 “with” the people of “Persia”
 that’s what my mother said

 We don’t have food to eat
 still my mom call him warrior
 still I couldn’t understand
 why the war isn’t over?

 My eyes filled with tears
 for the innocence of that child
 my terror of IS vanished at that time
 and my fleshy body lost its significance…

 These scars are engraving in history
 like a bad sculptor sculpturing a sculpt
 it’s the way a dark and deep wound will remain
 will remain in the hearts of my people…

 I feel helpless
 for those little hands,
 for that prolonged suffering
 for those dying stomach…

 Those devils are ruthless
 ruthless for their own land
 it’s like chiseling a masterpiece
 just to ensure that it will shatter
 shatter because you don’t like it the way it is…

 Humanity is losing its importance
 that’s what I saw
 it’s the way I remember
 A walk to my Home town!
