As a part of my participation in a training campaign in Vancouver, named Badasht, I wrote some poetry. This poem is the second of these, written 5th July 2013. It explores our role as youth in changing the world.


Badasht: The Responsibility on the Shoulders of the Youth

Busily engaged in hobbies, fancies,
avoidance of boredom
Our senses dulled to the deafening call
"Arise!"

To take a step is to listen
To throw our lives before His Will
ceaselessly searching for confirmation
Reflecting, committing, steeling ourselves for a life of service

Is to pass beyond mere believing
Becoming experimenters, learners, implementers,
inspirers, upholders, defenders
lovers

Of the vision that propels
the bewildered masses towards its high destiny

And bewildered we are.

Your learning is warmly appreciated, and the ripple of your intent - your future influence - has me feeling better about the world I will leave behind one day.

Thank You.
