Slavery - Poem by Naveed Akram

I free the slaves of the desert,
They march through sand and stone;
Walking too much is prohibited,
Once they fail, once they crawl.

A freedom is sought, fully aware
Of the possibilities, the wrecks;
Anything of conquest is both
Understood and learnt.

Like the slavery of times too long ago,
We too gain slaves to be taught liberty.
