In 1934 Ataturk wrote this tribute to the ANZACS killed at Gallipoli. These infamous words of Ataturk are engraved on what is now hallowed ground for the ANZAC troops on Turkish soil. This inscription appears in ANZAC Cove, Gallipoli - Turkey, and also on the Kemal Atatürk Memorial, Anzac Parade, Canberra. ANZAC Day reminds us every year about what it is to be sovereign; a sovereign nation, a sovereign people, and mostly a sovereign democracy. Humanity requires that we learn lessons from history, and ANZAC Day is a day to remember the lesson of Gallipoli. The ANZAC soldiers travelled half the way around the globe to fight a battle to protect freedom, not understanding that the people they were fighting were also fighting to secure their own freedom. A horrific loss of life for both sides, with the Turks suffering twice the casualties as the ANZAC, and with all dying to protect the same thing- Freedom. They were each fighting in honor of their sovereign and to protect their sovereignty. Understanding ANZAC Day requires an understanding of sovereignty. A sovereign country is defined as an independent self-governing country. It is a land that our own blood relatives sacrificed their lives to protect, so that we may enjoy our freedom. It is the land our ancestors lived and died on. It is a place of the most sacred and hallowed ground, where our roots are laid, and have been for generations. It is more than a just a spot of land. It is where our soldiers are laid to eternal rest. It is the home of our forefathers and the home of our children. It is our culture and it is our history. It is our home. It is in this context that the words of Atatürk bear deeper meaning. A true sovereign nation belongs to its people, and the people shall honor the home of their forefathers, their children, and the generations to come. 🌸 Lest we forget. 📸 @anchorestaurant
So, let’s slip into something more comfortable/ Taking it back, like unpacking a Lunchable/ Running for someone to tumble through/ just so much fun to you, let it all come to you/ what kind of drums are you bumping to? /Slumming and, dumbing down isn’t becoming you/ Suddenly, it’s coming up under you/ But if your busy just thumbing through, than you’re done and nobody won it, too/ Pardon my puns, I am still lugging the luggage that I packed like a ton of tools/ All I seem to notice is a lack of concentration/ Crooked in complexity, your back will need to be straightened/ You see, that was a request for you get spine/ Put your back into this quest for you to get shine/ Stop it with the blaming, and analog gaming, or you can quit trying/ Stop lying on your self/ Just accept the fact that all your little effort is just you crying out for help/ And stop fishing for some likes/ Either tell them how you feel, or call this shit a night/ And this is just what I say/ when I’ve had a long day with sleep pecking at my brain/ But the struggle isn’t pretty when it holds you/ Doing everything you’re supposed to/ This is where my mind goes to... Its old news... - - - #poem #poems #poetry #poets #poetsoninstagram #poetsofig #instapoet #instapoetry #poetrycommunity #writersofig #writersofinstagram #write #writing #writers #writer #rhymes #self #knowledge
7 days of collab with a king who is my brother, @smiley_faruq. He has performed at both of my book launches and how fitting it is that leads up to the 6 month anniversary of book 2? Go follow him. Everything in Italics is his words, the template for me to echo ☺️☺️☺️ #2018 #365Posts #SiblingsWhoWrite #MuslimPoet #PoemADay #NationalPoetryMonth #KingsAndQueens #PoetLife #WrittenWord #HeWrites #Wordsmith #SpilledThoughts #WeWrite #MenWhoWrite #PoetsofIG #BritishAuthor #BritishPoet #CaribbeanAuthor #CaribbeanPoet #JamaicanAuthor #JamaicanPoet

Regrann from @magesoul - Maybe it’s true, I wasn’t enough for you. But I can definitely say, I did my all for you. I did everything possible to show you, the love I had for you. Maybe it’s true, I should’ve focused on all the little things, I should’ve paid attention to all the details. But you will never understand that to me you were the greatest gift a person could have. Now tell me, how couldn’t I adore each one of your footsteps? How couldn’t I talk to everyone about how beautiful and precious you were? See, it’s the only way for me to show my love, by exalting you and declaring my deep love to you. I’m a firm believer that love must be showcased everywhere you go. Unfortunately what I believed wasn’t what you believed. I do apologize for not being able to hold in what I felt, I just wish you would’ve understood that there is a pure love underneath all these wounds. Maybe not the one you wanted, but definitely the one that’s desirable. – Carlos Medina •• The phases of the Soul & Destellos del Alma is available on amazon and via Link in my bio. • • Precious Pain will be available July, 2018 • • #wordsmith #poetsofinstagram #poetryofinstagram #quote #quoteoftheday #writingcommunity #writersofig #proses #relationships #poetrycommunity #relationship #poems #instapoet #soul #poem #igpoets #instapoetry #poemsofinstagram #loneliness #writer #poetry #poetsofig #poet #poetsociety #carlosmedina #home #typewriter #magesoul #love

Maybe scars remain to show our resilience and that pain subides. - I'M SO EXCITED to share that I'm in the process of creating my very first book! This is a dream I'm no longer hesitating to make a reality. There's still so many bits and pieces needing to come together but I'm so stoked to share what it eventually becomes. This may or may not be an excerpt from it.. Stay tuned 😉🤷‍♀️ #poet #poetryofinstagram #poem #poemstagram #poema #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofig #poetsofinstagram #poetrybook #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writing #creativewriting #creative #art #artoftheday #wordporn #wordsofwisdom #wordsoftheday #quote #quotes #spilledink #workinprogress

Love draws out hate. All forms of it. Hate cannot destroy itself with hate. Love does that on its own. 🌹 #poem #writersofig #poetsofig #loveyou #love #hate
OUR BODIES MAY BE AT A DISTANCE, BUT OUR SOULS ARE CONNECTED.💑 Repost @the_blank_verse_ ・・ Connection . And no matter how far apart we are our souls will remain connected and inseparable, maybe this is what finding a soulmate truly means, out of sight but not out of mind, apart yet together, and not everyone has a blessed love like this, we are truly blessed you and I. . #theblankverse #poeticgeisha #bymepoetry #writesagram #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writerbynature #poetsofinstagram #poeticthoughts #poetry #lovewritingsomuch #lovetoowrite #writingaway #poetsofig #poetsagram #lovewords #thewordlife #wordsagram #thinkingoutloud #pennedthoughts #pennedwords #meandmywords #meandmypen #wordsoftheday #poetry #words
Did the gladiators feel braver When they donned the mask? Or did it simply hide their fear, As they waited for the axe? #evecattart #gladiator #brave #bravery #mask #masks #fear #axe #arena #romans #poetsofig #poetry #artistsofig
I was bound  And battered Scarred by what I saw Ravaged by the inaction In myself and the system . I had words then High and mighty Virtuous and stirring But no outlet No pedestal . I'm not bound anymore The trauma is just a ghost memory The nightmares have turned into a dreamless void And words fail me.
“The Ghost of Me”
The full sonnet from the exerpt I posted a while back ♥
It wasn't a loss for her now was it?
Such a mess we humans can be.
My first poem after a five year hiatus from writing. November, 2014
A body does not define you. What is "pretty" on the outside, may not be so pretty on the inside.
The only person to mend my heart after everything, was you.
