Perspective


We are so tiny, yet debate
As if the colour of the rainbow
Would change if we willed it so

Since childhood, we are taught fairplay
And to treat one another as our equal
Yet we still strive to be individuals

We have sheltered under the same
blue sky, looked out to the horizon
And gaze at the silvery moon

Throughout centuries, earth spins endlessly
And if she wobbles or shakes ever
so slightly, we give in to phenomenal fear

We are so tiny, yet debate
As if the colour of the rainbow
Would change if we willed it so

  1. ha. yes. or that we own the rainbow...
    instead of taking our place along side it or under it..
    and recognizing its beauty

  2. My thoughts are the same as Brian's......I love this poem, my friend, which says so much. Love the repetition of the first stanza at the end too, which brings it full circle. Really good writing!

  3. Yes, that's a truth of humankind. I like the repetition of the first lines at the end. It brings very satisifying closure.

  5. When I look back over the long years I cannot claim that I have achieved what I set out to achieve. I cannot now claim that I got what I wanted. No doubt one gets what one deserves through hardwork and so on, but not the real dream. Indeed, hard work leads somewhere but hardly anything specific.

    1. The real dream…I hope I am not blinded by a dream, Pakcik.

      Missing Al-Manar.
