Safe Space

I propose safe space. A special space where everyone can go to feel safe. Such spaces could exist in public parks, shopping centers, schools, beaches and many more places of interest that can become safer. People can go here to feel safe and enjoy an environment that's designated for their enhanced safety. Safe space can become a wonderful reality for cities that are ridden with high crime, or urban centers that have poor safety standards. Anyone can enter safe space and feel a sense of security, a place where they can feel totally safe, and an environment that promotes their personal safety and well-being. In such a place they can be comfortable around others, be able to read or sit on benches, or take a pause from the hectic pace of the world that can sometimes feel unsafe. Safe spaces can be dynamic places equipped with Wi-Fi access, safety signs, and safety guards, to ensure a high level of safety for visitors. Local precincts and firehouses can sponsor such places with events on safety and assign Safety Officers to these spaces. Disabled and retired individuals can benefit most by using safe space as a comfort zone, and these can be a wonderful place for meditation and healing. Had a bad day or too much on your mind? You can visit safe space to relieve the stress. There can be live music or special kiosks that play music for meditation and relaxation. You can have a meaningful experience and meaningful conversations with others without ever feeling threatened or a sense of safelessness. When there's too much to do and too much on your mind, safe space can be the answer for all your worries. In safe space, your safety always comes first such as a right to safety. Everyone can feel safe and no one can make you feel unsafe or intrude on your safety. These spaces can unite communities to promote safety and restore a greater balance of safety in our world. There is no risk of fire, there is no risk of natural disaster, there is no risk of personal harm or injury, violence or drugs, and you can feel totally safe and at peace with yourself and among others. Please vote (by + 1) to help spread the safety.

Merah Yaar

Merah yaar,
Bahar seh ayah aur deghyah pyar,
Kuch kah keh, kar keh, ho keh sahar,
Kareeb seh guzreh, woh har bar,
Jassai raat meh rotay hai pahar,
Aur yaad meh jaalteh hai chiraagh,
Kaabi nah ho wo mujseh paar,
Merah yaar,
Bahar seh ayah aur deghyah pyar.

Translation. My Friend.

My friend,
From the mountains,
who showed me love,
Doing this and that, giving me his aid,
May he always pass by me here,
Like mountains that cry at night,
And memories that glow in lamps,
May he never live far from me,
My friend,
From the mountains,
who showed me love.

Always First

The first kiss,
the first touch,
the first breath,
the first hug,
the first look,
the first word,
the first laugh,
the first love,
the first win,
the first chance,
the first step,
the first glance,
the first job,
the first boss,
the first home,
the first born,
the first moon,
the first star,
the first night,
the first car,
the first day,
the first dawn,
the first sigh,
the first morn,
the first come,
the first serve,
the first time,
the first girl,
the first wish,
the first verse,
the first light,
Always first.

Always Learning

Learning to talk,
Learning to walk,
Learning to see,
Learning to touch,
Learning to care,
Learning to share,
Learning to stand,
Learning to speak,
Learning to read,
Learning to write,
Learning by sight,
Learning by night,
Learning to give,
Learning to take,
Learning to let go,
Learning for sake,
Always learning.

Merah Ghar

Merah ghar,
Sapnoh seh bhar,
Koi ho nah kabr,
Nah choru woh dhar
Merah ghar,
Aaj aur kal,
Jah pehroh peh chal
Woh zameen hai samal,
Merah ghar,
Asmanoh seh jhar,
Jah sitaroh peh char,
Aur pahadoh keh paar
Jah lahtu har baar,
haar yah lahr,
Wo hai merah ghar.

Translation.

My Home

My home,
Full of dreams,
Know nothing else,
Refuse to leave this sacred place,
My home.
Today and tomorrow,
Where my feet may walk,
On soft ground
(on rose petals),
My home.
Affixed to the sky,
Where I can climb stars,
Astride mountains,
Where I always return,
in defeat or victory,
That is my home.
