Tajikistan, Tajikistan
With ties to Uzbekistan--
Surrounded by mountains
And river valleys within--
I want to tell your story,
But know not how to begin.

Tajikistan, Tajikistan
Neighbor of Afghanistan--
The turmoil on your borders
Must surely make some pale--
Yet the adventurous still come,
Your mountains to scale.

Tajikistan, Tajikistan
Lying north of Pakistan--
The Pamirs at this boundary
Stand proud and tall--
Peak Salmonid, the largest,
Towers over all.

Tajikistan, Tajikistan
Just south of Kyrgyzstan--
China borders you to the east.
Among former Soviet republics,
you are the least--
Smallest per capita GDP,
But such a water supply
He has given to thee!

Landlocked as you are,
You bear the scars
Of wars you no longer fight--
The international community
Has opened its eyes
And taken notice of your plight.

Tajikistan, Tajikistan
Seeking stability and peace--
True freedom may never come,
Despite your high literacy rate--
Because ninety percent of your people
Donít read His Book of Truth,
They likely will not know to find
Freedomís precious Gate.

Tajikistan, Tajikistan
Your greatest need is Him--
The beauty of your lands is not
An accidental whim--
So when you see your glaciers,
Or the streams they feed,
May you see Your Creator
And His love letter read.

Even though I'm not much on poetry, this tells an awesome story...has a geography lesson...and gives the Gospel......all in one! You are certainly far more creative than I am.

WoW! Never heard of this country or some of its counterparts. Amazing descriptions and research for this piece. I learned a lot and have been inspired to find out more! Good job!

This is nice. I liked the last verse the best of all. Thank you for sharing this!
