Abjured Poem Example

Wake Asia Wake - Part One - 6

Show them that a fair deal is still one to be honoured in your shores
             no one will take more than what is his earned share
             and none will seek to shortchange his honour for luxury
                                                                  Wake! India! Wake!
And let the Wheel of the Law turn your fortunes to steadfast mettle
             and he that abjured gold and palace to roam the streets and forests
             has long since won the hearts of nations beyond your continent
                                                                   Wake! India! Wake!
And learn from his example the simplicity of forsaking futile ambition
             of forsaking all that crippled your body and mind
             of letting them alone in their Vedic mystic glorification
                                                                    Wake! India! Wake!
For he has woken up those peer nations   they who woke up before you
             and have put their fellowmen in a state of equal plenitude 
             with nothing to envy those who conquered and humiliated you
                                                                     Wake! India! Wake!
And think not  nor devise how you may emulate your past masters
             envy not them their lives nor their wealth in times to come
             your future is no more   never more  tied to their apron strings
                                                 Wake! O! AsiaWake!                                                              
And let your heart beat to the rhythm of thriving hives
             let no one tell you where to put your feet next
             when you pull your weight together  there your feet will prop you up straight
                                                                       Wake! Asia! Wake!
And let those who enslaved your body and mind for so long
             let them learn from your willingness to forgive
             that they too have a place in your heart as guests
                                                                       Wake! Asia! Wake!
Do not crush the children of those whose ancestors sought to humiliate you
             children grow conditioned to the ways which you accepted for ages
             as you accepted the conditioning of your children by their fathers
                                                                  Wake! India! Wake!
(Continued in Part One - 7)
