"Be who you are and do what you want to, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."
-Dr Seuss

My bedouin friend,
It has been long,
Too long,
I notice the change you carried,
On your breeze,
It enflamed the Arab world,
It swept away the fear,
The torture,
The hatred,
The corruption,
That tormented countless peoples,
For six arduous centuries,
Its blessings,
Harboured by Allah,
Guided by the dead,
Were sprinkled amongst the blood-stained sands,
Its storms,
An army of the peasants,
Blew down palaces, kingdoms, and dictators,
And claimed the sands back,
In your rightful name,
My bedouin friend,
It has been long,
Too long,
Al–hdmu-lilah Ala Salama

The author's comments:
A poem about the undergoing change in the Arab World. By the way, marhaban means hello and Al-hdmu-lilah Ala Salama means thank God for your return
