We are Scotland

We are Scotland

A Poem by Zombie Waffle
"

A brand new poem, from the pen of a Scot, on behalf of the Scots nation - ancient and modern.

"

Look for us in the North.

Look for us in the Dark.

Look for us in the Cold.

That is where we stand.

 

We stand without fear.

We stand where others have fallen.

We stand where the nights are darkest,

And the days are shortest.

 

Our songs are of survival.

Our songs are of pride.

Our songs are of the courage

To stand as one against the storm.

 

And we will stand together.

And we will never surrender.

And we will make sure they remember.

And so we, the ones who dared to stand,

Will never be forgotten.

 

We are Scotland.

As a fellow brit, of the Welsh variety, I giggled in agreement at "Look for us in the cold" and "To stand as one against the storm". On another level, it was very empowering. Sounds almost like one of those epic lager adverts. Great work!

I found this poem like an anthem, almost. A pround people, a glorious nation. It makes me really want to visit my ancestral homeland.

I'm not Scottish, but this made me almost want to be. Very powerful ode to your native homeland!

Thanks so much for that! - Couldn't ask for a better compliment. =)
I love this poem! It makes me proud to be Scottish. The last line "we are Scotland" was my favourite.

Well, this is very strong with unique emotions. Nationalistic, yeah.
I specially like the powerful ending. Thanks for sharing..Keep it up buddy :D

Hehe I like this a lot! I like the way you did three similar lines and the last different in the stanzas. I sang this in my mind and then realized: oh snap, I'm only part scottish...

Felt very nationalistic, not like a suck-up. Good job. (-:
