1914 V: The Soldier
by Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.

And think, this heart, all evil shed away,

Spiritual Self
by Eve Morgan

Spiritual self has no color or race.
It is deeper, with a stronger base,
Than outward mortals in a photograph.
Spiritual mind can inwardly telegraph,
Helpful thoughts to others in stress.
Spirit reaches beyond hopelessness. Spiritual love and a desire for peace,
Changes the world, without cease.
From heart and soul, comes alchemy
To lift one another above tyranny.
Unleashed, spiritual self can unfold,

When the white flame in us is gone,
And we that lost the world's delight
Stiffen in darkness, left alone
To crumble in our separate night;

When your swift hair is quiet in death,
And through the lips corruption thrust
Has stilled the labour of my breath --
When we are dust, when we are dust! --

Why do you think you're better
If your culture is not the same?
Yes, maybe you seem different
But deep inside all are the same.

Why do they think they're better?
If one is black and one is white,
If one is man and one is woman.
They are the same, that is their right.

Sestina: Altaforte
by Ezra Pound

Loquitur: En Bertrans de Born.
Dante Alighieri put this man in hell for that he was a
stirrer-up of strife.
Judge ye!
Have I dug him up again?
The scene in at his castle, Altaforte. "Papiols" is his jongleur.
"The Leopard," the device of Richard (Cúur de Lion).

In the Midst of Chaos
by Seyi Ojenike

In midst of chaos, there is still a calm,
A place where peace can reign and troubles cease,
Where heart and soul can find a healing balm,
And troubled minds can find a sense of peace.

The world may rage around us, fierce and wild,
And storms may threaten to tear us apart,
But in that quiet space, we can be beguiled
By something greater than our troubled heart.

Just wait!
by Muskan Sharma

Just wait!
Just wait!
Wait for the right moment,
Life is struggle
Never ending struggle,
As long as there is life,
Till then there is struggle.
You too will definitely get,
which will be yours.
Just wait,

तू इंतज़ार कर
by Muskan Sharma

तू इंतज़ार कर,
सही मौके का
इंतज़ार कर,
जीवन संघर्ष है
कभी ना ख़त्म होने वाला संघर्ष,
जब तक जीवन है ,
तब तक संघर्ष है।
तू भी ज़रूर पाएगा ,
जो तेरा होगा।
तू इंतज़ार कर

by Oscar Auliq-Ice

The taste of joy, so crystal clear,
It’s the feeling of a soaring soul,
An escape from chains that take their toll.

Freedom, the right to be yourself,
To speak your mind and not just shelf,
To choose your path and your own way,
And live your life, day by day.

Freedom, the power to create,
