Tribute to the citizen rescuers of Savar, Bangladesh

Posting this poem by Indian poet, Musab Iqbal, as a tribute to the citizen rescuers of Savar, Bangladesh, risking their own lives to save others:

In your eyes I found a map
Of a new world
Yet to be born
Waiting in time’s embryo
Its soil is of freedom
And it smells dignity
The oceans are of love
And mountains are of courage
Citizens are like birds
Traveling without worries
And land is mirror of sky
Blue white black
Without borders, without wrinkles
The grass of misery doesn’t grow
And the star replaces the lamp
Roads are without destination
The world born in your eyes
Never ends.
