O Leader!, O Saviour! , O Braveheart!
Words went so sparse, in your praise
To Thank You, paint you an emblazon.
Galvanised is the nations skeleton now
We dare to fight, we dare to grapple.
There is no hawk on prowl, no one a maim 
You kindled the fire,  darkness burned
We enjoy the blue sky with dazzling sun

You were the Candle, you were the light
You were the ark, you swept the dark.
Courage is synonymous with your name 
Voice to, dumb by the oppression
An ear to the deaf, whose ears fear.
Shadowy  wings to the brood you gave
To outbrave the deserts of despondence
We learnt to crawl seeing you ahead.

Now I don’t dare to say, you left
You left us Dear Leader, they say
I feel all papers lie, all news is fake
I see, masses weep, wailing so deep
My hands shivered holding my pen
Crying for the lone cry in the wilderness
I, let not my tears roll out of eyeballs
Better seep in heart, nourish your love.

Your never died, and you never will
You live in the living of one and all.

    Hello Malik, Your free verse poem tribute to the very great man is very inspirational. The imagery you've employed in this write is employed quite artfully. I like that declaration you used: "Courage is synonymous with your name." Truly impressive in every respect. "7" is the highest I am allowed to give. (I would make it higher if I could.) All the best my friend . . . Cheers, Gary

    Leaders like him resemble giant trees that offer us shelter in case of rain or the hot sun therefore when they are cut down we find ourselves without protection and then understand more of the magnitude of the man in question! Excellent work because it is written in all honesty and truth, Dear Malik! Another tree will grow in its place! It might take time but be certain it will for the LORD never leaves the city of his people without fortifications!

    My friend, when we are body conscious, we have to worry about a lot but when we become soul conscious, nothing to worry about as we are keeping the same status of live and dead. Nice to read though it gives a little bit to worry. Keep writing to esteem. Thanks.
