Daughters of Soil ( Balochistan )

Claudia Helderberg

An eternal song
sings
in your veins
means
from the creation of the world
of civilization
at Mehrgarh
Your nation
which falls and falls
In vein
Your desparate
calls

From the disasters
of nothingness
you come
In nothingness you walk
day after day

In search of lost
wonders
of your Culture
The grave
which is just
your home
on the endless
path of desolation
you roam

The Stigma of Fear
which is planted in your souls
in daily septicemia here
above the abyss
from time
and suffering
and lost controls

You carry the torch
high
And still close the ranks
continue on your Long March
on hard banks
colorful garments there
the cold military gray
forced unit color
opposite
mere
which soaks the landscape
with hardness and steel
and false tone
and yet is set on sand and
erosion
