“I’m not a Saudi born”

I am an expatriate

Who has come from srilanka

Lives in the country of holy Makkah

 

Where the deserts spread as far as the eye can see.. 

The sun shines ever so bright and strong.. 
In the land of the golden sun, in which I belong

 

The beauty of date trees stands majestically

It cannot be replace by anything perfectly

 

The people here with a great hospitality
globally welcomed by other nationalities.

Less evil; what I saw

When they draw the Sharia-Law

 

There, the country was in religious extremism

Now I entered in the boundary of Islamic pietism

 

Stepped on the dry land with honest

Effect, my dress got modest.

 

My eyes which used to capture the green land

Now go across the desert sand

 

My kid who flew in the rainfall like a bumble bee

Joys now making sand castle near the Yanbu sea
 Keeps me away from the blood relations

Anyway, comfort with annual vacations.

I’m not a Saudi born

 nevertheless I feel this is my own
