Poem: Take on the TidePoetry by Mamoon Alabbasi Salem-News.com
Examining man's quest to live another day...
(LONDON) - This latest poem from Mamoon Alabbasi addresses both the hope and the reality of the situation the earth is gripped by. It is humanity on the move.
So often in this day and age we are deceived, we are led by people who claim to have the better interests of humanity in their hand, when in fact they do not.
Poem: Take on the Tide
Though I am no Messiah
I still bare the kiss of Judas on my cheek
And while I may be no mighty Caesar
The dagger of Brutus still rips through my side
Though you see no marks of torture on my flesh
I still bear the scars of Spartacus across my soul
Yes I am lost, on my knees and in chains
But I still dare to dream, and limp with pride
Though I may die without ever reaching my destination
But isn't standing one's ground a sacred destination as any?
So don't ask me where this sail is heading
You can either jump ship or brave the tide
