Random Poem:

Egyptian revolution
section4

We faced armored dragons,
 1
Fire from above and pellets
 2
embedded in unshattered ideals,
 3
We gathered here in peace;
 4
the opposite of weakness,
 5
Unified voices electrifying
 6
the heavens above.
 7
 
 
We were invincible,
 8
Inconceivably stubborn,
 9
Surprising even ourselves
 10
as we tore through the system,
 11
Fear cowered after
 12
the first broken bone
 13
and fallen body,
 14
We lay determined
 15
even in death.
 16
 
 
Today we are men of history,
 17
Our names etched
 18
by clicking remotes
 19
and internet streams.
 20
If pens are waiting
 21
our blood is ready,
 22
Spilled on roaring streets
 23
and weeping pavements.
 24
 
 
I won't tell you goodbye
 25
mother,
 26
And please don't cry,
 27
Yes I am young,
 28
Yet I've achieved in days
 29
what men couldn't in lifetimes;
 30
The people have spoken
 31
Tyrants shall not sleep tonight.
 32
