Come Along! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

come along with me
my enemy!
sing a song with me,
my enemy!
if you have any sight:
sharp and keen-
have a look at the trees:
tall and green -
take breath in breeze:
fresh and clean-
suppress your thoughts:
foul and mean-
and don't try to do any wrong with me
come along with me...

i find this eve:
calm and serene-
so soft this grass is velvet green-
for a friendly move
it's a perfect scene'
so why speak a word so strong with me
come along with me...

be glad and smile like a rose
of spring...
forget for a while every sad thinking...
only friendly style
is a finest thing...
so let's go and walk for a long with me
come along with me...

step one:
let's leave all bad stuff.
step two:
let's shake our hands in love.
step three:
witness new dawns with me.
come along with me and turn my FRIEND
come along with me...

    We can annihilate our enemies through love! Who can turn down such an invitation to go for a walk in an ambience of peace, beauty and love? Learning more of you, I feel that these thoughts are not hollow, but springing from a heart that allows happy accommodation even to enemies! ! Enjoyed the poem and its spirit- benevolent and compromising! ! (Report) Reply

    This is what I felt from this poem:
    The plea's we make to a love are often ignored, subjected comments, anger and blaim. A lot of times we blaim ourselves and hold on to love even after we know the wrongs are real we still love them...just to have peace and be able to get our sleep we give our chances over and over like a broken record. This person will not stop what they do! And one who keeps trying to make peace are the ones who loves and gives more than recieves by suffering unselfishly.

    This is a beautiful thought. You have a beautiful soul. This is the way, when you start friendship with those who are not nice to you. They are enemies, because they are just afraid and fear can weaken anybody down. (Report) Reply

    I loved the message of this poem and the fresh,
    new style you used to write it in. To try to honestly
    embrace our enemy has stymied man for centuries.
