Anatomy Of Rank And File/   Sami Khalil


A political message in a speech

 

A nation that stands together prospers together.

A nation that dreams together rises together.

And a nation that sanctifies one another lives forever.

Then, arrest me; shred my words if I have rocked in futility your driftwood boats, no folly while I endeavor.

And, embrace me if I have attested to truth, for in truth lays all the treasure.

That we are born to live voraciously, to weather,

And in our quietest deaths wade through skies of reflection, looking for signs beyond measure.

While in the meantime, between lines and ridges,

Spaces and times let me evoke your bellwether,

Your loveless lives, your rundown hovels, and chide your futile drives.

That is…My pleasure!

This is especially poignant considering the political climate we now find ourselves in, perhaps even more than when it was written. Great write.

A very interesting piece, Sami.

I am not a massive follower of politics, but I certainly appreciate the messages in your words here.
A very impressive choice of words, arranged and given great power by the theme of this write.

And a brilliant picture, too! Well done.

So this implies that a politician is responsible for the ascent or descent of a nation, since he is the person who can unite the rest into some mission, and his views are adopted, and thus represent the views of the common people. Pen On, Sir.
