Dr. Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek Poems

This poem is dedicated to you Omer Adegair - shedding tears of (happiness and sadness) . This poem is dedicated to the young Sudanese generation who made the change with bare hands in their peaceful uprising of December 2018*

Let's begin the march
The one thousand miles today

I feel sad as sadness could be
Cause I'm afraid that one day
I may not be able to say
To my grandchildren

It is a long time since
I left my African Village
And to town I took the passage
With a bundle of clothes

Maya Angelou
You are truly original
So you are phenomenal

My wife
You are the essence of life
My free space
Where no one could dare to trace

Millions of tears
Were shed at all spheres
Tears of children
Tears of mothers

I am a helpless bird in this cage
It is my home prison
And for no good reason
It is a half metre range

Dreams are the bliss for the bride
In her first marriage day
And the hope for the sailor
In a rough sea

Robben Island stood alone
An endless horizon in a lonely Zone
Amid an angry sea

It was just a dream, a strange dream
It was a dream
Only a dream,
That I saw the elephant

I have always dreamt of flying a plane
And travelling miles and miles away
Swiftly fly over vast plains

Make your dreams like wild flowers
Freely grow in the moors
And send their scents equally to the rich and the poor
Let your dreams be the joy of the maid

Dreams are colorful
As the rainbow
Dreams like streams
Some are fast

It was fifteen years ago
I was forty-five
You were twenty-two

Despite your ugly Antonov
Despite your horrible Molotov
Despite your terrible Kalashnikov

You have stolen my money
But money is compensable
You have stolen my land
But land is retrievable

Sniper! !
Why do you disguise
in that disgraceful mask
To do your dirty task

The last time I saw him
There he slept in peace
In calmness
With a smile on his face

I -hereby- confess that I had loved women
Some were so hot
Some were shy and a bit cold
But you were different

River Nile Oh, River Nile!
You run like a silver chain
Through the green African plains
You did never stop or restrain

The Best Poem Of Dr. Ahmed Gumaa Siddiek

The One Thousand Miles Journey Begins Today

This poem is dedicated to you Omer Adegair - shedding tears of (happiness and sadness) . This poem is dedicated to the young Sudanese generation who made the change with bare hands in their peaceful uprising of December 2018*

Let's begin the march
The one thousand miles today
And pave the way
To build the new Soodan
And draw the name of this country
In the book of the human history
Let us begin the march
Let's begin with a wide stride
With full pride
And ride the one thousand miles
Over deserts and across the Nile
To freedom, justice and peace
And draw on the happy faces millions of smiles
Let us begin the march
Let's celebrate the birth of new generations
Equipped with better education
To be the best of all the nations
Let's begin the dreams of freedom, justice and peace
Let's begin the race
Let us begin the march
And we have done
We have started the run
And it was no surprise
We made it and won the prize
We went the one thousand miles distance
To freedom with resistance
Hand in hand as twins
We have crossed and made the wins
The one thousand miles begins today
With high dreams we go the long way
Together we build schools for children
Where they can study and learn
And spend some of the day
Drawing animals and trees
And play games in peace
And rejoice
With loud voices
Pleased with their toys
And full with joys
Then we build roads from the north to the east
From the south to the west
So the farmer can happily go to sell his goods
And because he is the one who provides the foods,
We will thank him for his work
With a dispensary to cure his family
And care for his newborn in the new Soodan
Where every child, woman or man
Can practice happiness with no fear
In a free democratic atmosphere
And we all aspire for prosperity
With dignity
Among the nations of the world
With pride and integrity
With unity and solidarity
To achieve the big dreams in a new country

*Omar Adegair is the President of the Sudanese Congress Party, who shed tears of happiness and sadness when he was assigned to read the speech of the Civilian Negotiators with the Military Junta at the event of coming to an agreement about the Constitutional Declaration in Khartoum on August 4 2019
