What ails you brother

Written by: Chokri Omri

It is up to our hearts 
to arrive at noble feelings
and walk with them 
all the way up 
to noble thoughts.
The fields are laden 
with rips horrendously 
unmended
Will it be availed 
to mend them 
without surrender?
Come brother and walk 
with me when you can
into a better place
in which dreams 
are supported 
by realities
not baffled by them.
Come brother and talk
with me as much as 
the truth can speak
against their wounds
and crimes.
Come brother and take
good care of your health
for the journey is long.
It is a journey of life 
not that of those 
who tell you not to go 
and tell me not to come.
Come brother and don't 
tell me about what ails you
for what ails you ails me too. 
We will walk and work and talk
together, not apart, together.
