Wake Up! - Poem by Sameer Ahmed

Wake up!
From your unyielding prestige
That made you abortive
And you turned into a nefarious sculpt.

Wake up!
From your morbid thoughts
That made you an introvert
And you became a virulent foe of your own flesh.

Wake up!
And rectify your delusions,
Nurture yourself
To glow again.

Wake up!
And wipe off the smog from your eyes,
Chase the overrated world
To be a paragon.

Wake up!
And don't muddle yourself anymore
A gleam of hope still remains, therefore,
Wake up! Take up! !

    You have expressed well the call to wake up, not from sleep but from the mind numbing conformist regime that most mankind seem to be under. This is well worded and has a good flow and rhythmn in it and the imagery and message that comes from your words gives way to a wake up call to end all wake up calls. The opening of the mind and the refreshing of the soul. To not be bound by the mindsets laid but to renew in the wonders are there for all to receive. Thanks for the contact to check out your poems. I enjoyed the read. Many blessings to you (Report)Reply

    A long awaited and needed call to all who sleep yet walk this earth. No need to feel self pity and think that you're going to be handed things in this life. WAKE UP and get it for yourself. Hope lies within each individual and we must find it! Very nicely put. (Report)Reply

    Let these lines linger in all minds
    With each clock bit
    Things around, going beyond control
    Let this become a Hymn
    To prompt a recourse.

    Sameer, let this be a wake-up call for all humanity! Against all those divisive forces which divide man from men! Comining from a future Doc. it becomes all
    the more significant! 10!

    to tell the true, i don't like this word combination 'wake up' as i have to wake up at 5: 25 on weekdays, but i like your work. if you want to smile read my 'Mammy! Wake up! '. konstantin. (Report)Reply

    Your poem is strong not only in the way you have written it but also in the message, we have taken the bitter pill that has caused an unnatural sleep and must awaken and clear the mind of the fog. 10+ (Report)Reply
