In The North; In The South(English/Persian) Poem by Farzad Jahanbani

In The North; In The South(English/Persian)

Rating: 5.0

The world;
The city,
In the North,
Is climbing up from the mountain;
Is advancing among the jungle;
Is going forward inside the sea.
Is going backward inside the pollution;
Is regressing among the wilderness;
Is falling down from the bluff;
In the South,
The city;
The world.

در شمال
بالا می رود از کوه
جلو می رود میان جنگل
پیش می رود درون دریا
پس می رود درون دود
عقب می رود میان برهوت
پایین می رود از پرتگاه
در جنوب

Thank you for sharing your vision of North and South. Indeed, we are declining even as we go uphill. The best minds in the North are using their intelligence to devise an artificial brain, or to pursue the frontiers of physics to a domain of mathematical, conceptual games. It seems like they are going up a hill by doing so, but in terms of the intelligence needed to deal with real human problems on this earth, we are going downhill. It is hard to see something as large as the world, but sympathy gives you this broad poetic vision.

Thanks a lot, that's right, 'North' and 'South' have two meanings: rich & developed countries / rich areas in cities, opposed to poor & undeveloped countries / poor areas in cities.the new version of this poem is North; Center; South my suggestion is reading it too I am glad for your commant

The difference between north n south is delineated well. Nature and urban life are often at odds. well penned.
