An Unstoppable Wind

A poem dedicated to my mom Najma Mahmood who celebrates her 75th birthday tomorrow. :) 

An unstoppable wind
A poem by Faridoon Shahryar 

The wind was caged 
Inside four walls
Of a small town
A ray of light sparked 
An interest to spread 
The wings;
Window of closed minds
Burst open 
The sky was her own
An applause followed
And many a storms
There were options 
To get buried in the hot sand, 
Merge with the cold sea water
Hide in illusion of clouds
But this was a wind 
Meant to bring in Change 
Not out of any design 
She just refused to 
Buckle down under pressure 
Many an obituary were written, 
Yet, the journey got inspiring
The wind became a storm
When it was forced into submission
The opposition gave way grudgingly
Bugle of victory 
Can be heard from a distance 
Such triumphs are rare
The wind is simply unstoppable...
