Poem Silent Cry
The story told by a voice mystical, to a child young for the very first time… The air about him had a choking sensation, he could only gasp a longing undescribable…
His heart pained his soul cried, to no avail, for deafness was in the skies… His mind envisioned the beauty of such, the martyrdom of two princes whose valour he could only think of.
He recalls that magical day, in “Sirhind” did his heart lay… His silence broken as the wind blew, as if indicating a longing to be fulfilled.
He looked up, the sun shined strong, but he felt in his Heart, that something was wrong…
He remembers the tale vividly clear, two young princes, appearing before “Baizid Khan”. Their stride elegant, their beauty pure, as ‘lions’ did they enter their battle field.
His ears remember, a melody of steel, The two Lions roared into battle, in a salute on hearing, the enemy crumbled… Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa! Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh!…
Baizid Khan the Governor of Sirhind, startled… Could not believe his eyes. Two young playful aged Princes, stood before him fearlessly tall.
Baizid Khan tried all tactics, to convert the young Princes to Islam,
” Accept Islam!, he said, the riches of the world will be thine, the beautiful maidens will be thine, you will live a life, of bliss for all time”…
Did speak the princes to Baizid Khan,
” We the Sons of a Lion, His name thou know as Guru Gobind Singh Ji, We the grandsons of selfless sacrifice, His name thou know as Guru Teg Bahadur Ji,
We the great grandsons of a saint and soldier, The ordainer of Miri-Piri, know Thee him as Guru Hargobind We the great great grandsons of a Martyr, of Divine Love Thou knowest him as Guru Arjun Dev Ji.
The eyes of Guru Nanak, speaketh to thee Baizid Khan, we do not prize this materialistic world… Our Khalsa is our Life, it is the will of the Lord, Thou do what thy please, we accept not Islam, for we are the Sons of Khalsa, Guru Gobind Singh Ji.”
He recalls such valour, the amazement of the people in attendance, they could not believe what they saw, two Princes aged 6 and 8, fearlessly confronting, Baizid Khan…
After all efforts failed Baizid Khan… Did speak, Diwan Sucha Nand, a Hindu by faith, a devil at heart… He spoke a curse, that went against all teachings, of this, only God knew of …
Sucha Nanda spoke… ” Baizid Khan, The serpent (Guru Gobind Singh Ji) we see, has caused thee much trouble, and he is but only one… The young serpents of such poison, if thee let live, will one day cause such upheaval the world has not seen of…”
The Quazi spoke, ” Baizid Khan… The two you see before thee, are a determent to Islam, it is thy duty to fulfil. I order the sentence, that they should be executed at once…”
He recalls, the cheerful look, the smile, on the faces of the two young Princes… They spoke… The court and those in attendance,
looked on in awe…
” Quazi! Is that all you can do?!, We fear not death, We keep it with us, wherever we go… Quazi, commence thy sentence at once!”
He recalls the poetic picture, of such, he can not describe… The two princes standing tall, amongst a wall of blood-thirsting-bricks. A house of Khalsa, he saw being built, the foundation supported by sacrifice, He saw the blood of such fragrance, the wind within forever carries with time…
He remembers such bravery, The brick at the knee of the prince was to be placed. The brick layer saw that the prince’s flesh was in the way, so he broke a brick to bypass the flesh.
To such did speak, with such valour prince Zorawar Singh.
“Thou art building the house of the Khalsa, what are thy doing?!. The foundation must be fully completed. Remove the flesh that is in thy way, for the house of the Khalsa must be of unbroken bricks.” His spine shivered, when such words were spoken, Only then… did he understand, the glory of this sacrifice.
He looked up into the now dying sun, He knew now that the heavens were still… The two Princes that God had ordained, had gone back to their Godly domain.
Of such sacrifice did he witness, Of which will never be surpassed ever again, may God be witness to such a claim…
