Towhid Islam Khan

Can you give me one drop of water in the name of peace!   
Or can you convert the entire drop into a state free from everything!
I would like to swallow such a holy drop of water to your name.
Then, I would be your slave for four hundred years,
And wash away all the dirt.
For your grace, to please you,
I can be lamer than that.
Give me one drop, just a single drop!
I'll dedicate my body and soul to the birds, and
Make nests for them.
I, I will burn the houses,
And plant trees everywhere,
And also make the world a better forest.
For one drop only, of water, of peace,
A very fresh drop.

The poet is an alumnus of the, Department of English
East West University
