We will rise again

Rumbling, tumbling, it ran down

Like a fierce creature engulfing a town,

It gave us tears and made us frown

But could not snatch our dignity crown!

No one could guess when the clouds were seen

They traveled till Khyber, 30 miles I mean!

The charming sky was no more clean

When Attabad became a disaster scene

As earth cracked and buried homes

Life went off with the sliding loam,

And the angel of death in my valleys roamed

For a while all hope and smiles were gone!

There was mud and boulder and dust everywhere,

Such scenes, in my valley, are very rare

As the water roared with a mighty flare,

A deadly dam became our snare!

I can hear the cries and feel the pain,

Bringing down one’s home is never fain!

These tears and sobs will not be vain

From the ashes and dust

We will rise again!

We will rise again!
