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!

An impressive write/ Humans are born to be free but so many come along and want to take that away. Mostly humans have lived under bondage or dictatorship.

It is the poem that reflects the power of truth and caresses which should be present in every politician for citizens. your poem is exceptional. Especially these lines
Spaces and times let me evoke your bellwether,
Your loveless lives, your rundown hovels, and chide your futile drives.
That is…My pleasure!

the way you have given the concept what should be the goal of every politician is heart warming

'A nation that stands together prospers together.
A nation that dreams together rises together.
And a nation that sanctifies one another lives forever...'
This is the much needed message for this moment for the nations getting divided on prejudices by those power mongers. Your words reasonate with fraternity, liberty and equality- bedrock of democracy, dear poet friend. Thank you for sharing this powerful and splendid speech :)

Sami, you have left me speechless. This is a fantastic piece. I love the way you started this one. Couldn't take my eyes off the screen :).

"hen, 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." - These lines got me thinking.

A really good write :)
