Traveler To A New Destination - Poem by Kazi Nazrul Islam

Travellers to a new destination, March ahead,
Cry out loud, 'man is heroic.'
Everywhere the cowards crowd, come and playa new game.
Take your boat into the tidal waves and ride triumphantly
Penetrate the nether world and.look toward heaven.
There is no time to put on war armour, come out all,
Feel the touch of danger on your naked shoulders.
Don't nurse the hope that you will first get ready for the battle.
Night shall end dawn emerge and the birds sing.
Come out those intending to playa proper tune to dawn.
Those intent on self-destruction get engulfed in darkness
One striking at the other amid confusion.
Brave soldiers of the march! Light the torches, march ahead.
Frenziedly sing the Marching song, sing the tune of dawn!
You will surely arrive at the door of dawn! Victorious be
your march.

[Original: Abhijan; Translation: Abu Rushd]
