~ Twitter Revolution (Based on Egypt) - A Sonnet ~
The eastern wind, carried by crescendos
of buried screams, is now made of metal.
Signals will rule the world, says the coffin,
and so will the bombing of all rebels.
There are women, children, and vagabonds
that are wiping leeches off their turbans.
A stone will speak louder than camouflage
when facing the mouth of the suburban.
Where is Allah in the land of no green?
Blinded by the price tags they have become,
He is in the keyboard, says the rebel,
as he's disguised in the sands of “Freedom” -
she’s the same harlot that swallowed oil.
Tonight’s the night her stomach will spoil.
For those of you who indulge yourselves in salad-eating, Truth-seeking, peace-making frenzies each and every second of your life, this webpage is not for you. If you don't (which I am sure you don't!), welcome to my Facebook homepage! Spoken Word Poetry is my middle name!
Everyone has heard the age-old cliché “There is no rest for the wicked.” Well, if that’s true, why does it seem like the good are fast asleep? Why is there still evil in the world? Why do we wait on the leaders of our governments when there are only a handful of them? And worse: If we strongly outnumber evil, but allow it to co-exist, what does that make us?
It is foolish to think that we – as imperfect beings – will solve all of the world’s problems. That is why ThinkFast MoveFaster’s primary goal is to intercept the enemy before he even makes a move. How will that be achieved? It is simple – through the mind, body, and spirit! Here, we focus on merging individual gifts – whether that be poetry, music, painting, research, debating, etc. – with our critical thinking skills and, most importantly, social activism. The fusion of these three qualities will open a threshold into longer-lasting innovative solutions for hot-button conflicts.
We will turn a blind eye to no human rights issue. This includes global poverty, hunger, human trafficking, environmental destruction, natural disasters, child soldiers, etc. It is important to properly educate ourselves about these matters before we head into mentally uncharted territory. Learning doesn’t stop after the bell rings. Websites, books, and internet workshops will be provided on our official website (under construction!)
Building alliances with non-profit organizations that have already made considerable impacts on the international community such as Charity: Water and Equality Now will help foster self-sufficiency for the indigents around the world when it comes to basic human necessities like water, food, shelter, and safety.
