The Pilgrimage

1 December 2010


The Pilgrimage


From young people of every nation
Will gather again to exalt
One faith in God for salvation
Inert spirit to offer salt

Will gather again to exalt
Jubilee of youth in pilgrimage
Inert spirit to offer salt
Of reaching hands, no blockage

Jubilee of youth in pilgrimage
To symbolize the living faith
Of reaching hands, no blockage
In horizon mingling with interfaith

To symbolize the living faith
Rainbow of races as covenant
In horizon mingling with interfaith
Song of praise resounding in rampant

Rainbow of races as covenant
One faith in God for salvation
Song of praise resounding in rampant
From young people of every nation

    I read this several times, I so much liked the cadence. The short, rhythmic feel of the lines brought to mind masses of peoples marching to salvation. (I don't know if that was your intent, but that is poetry, is it not, how each reader feels a piece in a unique way. So I hope you will forgive me if this was not your intent.) I especially liked your last verse and also the line 'rainbow of races as covenant'. Very well done. Congratulations on your win in the pantoum contest.
