Echo of The Youthful Voice

I represent the speckles of dying ember of my country

I represent the youth to speak up,

standing between the lines of ideals and fallacies.

For I want to express my belief: my ideas and my whispers to be taken heedfully.

 

 

 

Yesterday, our convictions and ideals were tangled with fire and gloom

We were told be grateful of everything they have bestowed upon us

Indeed, our intention was read like a letter  by  blindfolded eyes

Our voice box is no longer the larynx of the mammals

but we’re  not even the  Aves to begin with!

 

 

 

You can tell  lies but you can’t obstruct our path

to voicing our deepest sorrow of Her.

Education elevates our minds,religion speaks us truth and peace,

and race connects us,youth.

But your  impolitic, political agenda clouds the rays of  dawn for us,

as we’re on our knees, clenching hands in hope for the better future.

 

 

 

Lamented, Saddened by the fact that our future is compromised.

We’re the misfits of the society,trying to fit in to your fabric of filtering holes.

We shall save Her from you:patch Her up and

recreate the abandoned dreams of ours.

She has been and still is a wielder..

An unfortunate wielder of the barbarous Caledfwlch,

that has been long consumed by the shades of the shadow.

 

 

 

To let ourselves  foresee a brighter future, we shall never talk nonsense, but

to whisper words of history,science, literature and hope.

I invite you to join me on a journey

to swim against the tide of their version of normal.

And this is to you, people who disparage this youthful voice.

You can call me liberal, call me an outcast or a seeker of foolish fame.

But I don’t need you to tell what’s wrong or what’s supposed to be right

I  only need my voice to be heard, to be echoed across the nation.

 

 

 

Because a voice can be of two things:

injecting barbs of despair or reliving hope for  long dead souls.

And I believe my voice is hope.

  As we experience the transition from a dreadful phase that once we lived with for years in self-discovery and interaction with others to a phase of uncertainty that promises us nothing but worries, it is simply fine to feel numb and to have our hope on the wane. ” We fear what we don’t know”, the famously cheesy cliche that our society has always used to describe the fears of the unknown( the future), chiefly radiated by the adults. Due to the very fact that we, adults and not to forget ,adolescents, tend to take control of our lives, encompassing from the the least, insignificant whispers of words  in everyday conversation to the nerve-wrecking, life-defining moments.

   As a result, we become  a bunch of practically,constructive planners, interpreters, and judges for our own life. We yearn to know a gist of the unknown so that we can make an ideal, imaginative but yet realistically attainable blueprint of our future. For the past long gone, we make self-reflections of what had gone wrong or what would be right, relying on every decision, footsteps, attitudes we choose for ourselves. We hope that every mistake is to be missed, we hope faults and slip-ups go unheard of and unseen from the calculating eyes and yet Nature operates on its own way and order, surpassing our flawed minds. Everything happens for a reason whether it’s bad or not- it relies on our own perception to wholeheartedly embrace it as a part of the process of being a man of great character or to perceive it as your downfall. Whatever good or bad choices we make: yet we learn most from the darkest outcome of our action.

 وَإِذْ يَمْكُرُ بِكَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِيُثْبِتُوكَ أَوْ يَقْتُلُوكَ أَوْ يُخْرِجُوكَ وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ

When the disbelievers plotted against you, to imprison you, or kill you, or expel you. They planned, and God planned, but God is the Best of planners. [Al-Anfal 8:30]

We overthink stuffs that we often forget to go with the flow,to enjoy every moment in gratitude and peace of mind.We should live in the moment, be aware of past mistakes and  be ever hopeful and rationally optimistic of what life has to unfold for us in the future. Let us put our faith in Allah. Cast aside all our worries, anxiety and unnecessary thoughts of what supposed to happen or what might have been. Let He be the wind to guide our yacht  in the ocean of the unknown.

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” Unknown Author
