United

Spread the love

Would you catch me if I fall?
Care to see if I m alright.
Promise to give us your all?
And vow to stand united.
For a worthy and noble cause;
Let’s step up without a pause.

Don’t stop don’t ever pause;
Lest we break down and fall.
When passion rules the cause;
Don’t fear to do whats right.
Watch as our emotions unite;
Perception shared with all.

Come with good will or not at all.
United we stand, divided we fall.
Pledging allegiance to the cause;
Learn to determine what is right.
If people around the world unite;
Peace won’t have to face a pause.

Shutting our eyes won’t make it right;
The leaves have ripened to the fall.
We might win a little or lose it all;
Do not put your life on pause.
Just tune it out and find a cause;
Feel your heart and soul unite.

Now when we have united;
Everything seems to be alright.
Let’s start without a pause;
All for one and one for all.
Continue on this noble cause.
Seasons change from summer to fall.

So when you feel that life has paused;
Search for a noble, worthy cause.
Feel the delight when hands unite;
Be true to self and good to all.
Know that you’ll be quite alright;
Even if you trip and fall.

Promise to catch you if you fall;
Pain and sadness won’t be caused.
Come back with me to first of all.

    A noble message Sanaa.
    As I was reading your sestina I was thinking why doesn’t this happen? It does when ego, prejudice and that goal to be number one step aside.

    Fantastic form Sunny One

    we all need a purpose and a reason – in whatever shape and form that may take…when it is another person it is all the more special

  5. Alan Stevens says:

    Catch me if I fall – Love the way this opens and finishes, a sense of forlorn wanton living and hope in the midst of circumstances. Excellent.

    “For a worthy and noble cause; / Let’s step up without a pause.” if only people would give this a serious thought unity among all would become so easier…a lovely poem in a difficult form…

  8. LOVE that banner photo – it is always a treat to come to your site and see what photo you have in store for us………loved the poem too……a good discussion of unity……..I dont understand, when so many of the world’s people want it, it is so hard to come by.

  10. HA says:

    First, I loved the rhyming verse. It gives it a really nice rhythm.
    Second, it’s a beautifully wrought poem. It’s only when we are united that we can put an end to all the prejudices and judgments and live together in peace. I really liked the ending.

    Ah, yes. You’ve captured why it’s better to work together than to fall alone. Great rhythm!

  13. X says:

    Even when we unite we run the risk of failing, but even then – having the others there to support you in your falling, makes it a beautiful thing. Nice form ma’am

  16. Rall says:

    Good job with the sestina form which I find fiendishly difficult to write. Altruistic poem…we can only keep hoping I suppose.

  18. billgncs says:

    It’s always important that we question – is it right, honorable, good – before we commit to any cause.

    I think humans are inclined to often commit without thinking.

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Bill,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂
      Highly appreciated, have a nice weekend.

  19. Flawless form; a Sestina can be a bear cat, but you make it look like a sweet house kitty. The message, albeit idealistic, is a call to fellowship, for heart connections, a halt to chaos, & all the negative “isms”–race, sex, patriot, etc.

  20. Mary says:

    It is good to be united with someone with whom there is mutuality….with heart AND soul! Is it luck or skill or destiny? I always wonder.

      Thank you so much, so glad you liked it 😀

    unity among nations and people generally is a wonderful thing – so hard to gain but makes so many things possible – and def. a path to peace and freedom as well

  23. Alex Dissing says:

    Very impressive that you were able to switch it up from stanza to stanza, despite the repetition style. Substance wasn’t sacrificed either – powerful words.

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 😀

  24. Abhra says:

    Hi, a very nice and heart warming message – I like the rhyme scheme you use too but somehow when I read the piece as a whole, I find that the charm is somehow faded, which could have held it better. Just my thoughts.

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Abhra,

      Thanks for stopping by, so glad you liked it 🙂

  26. Unity an exercise in human heart..
    where we dance together
    for common purpose
    expressing spirit
    in lights of
    unifying soul..
    the purpose must
    be one.. to bind the
    tribal instinct together
    as one.. so what will be the
    purpose.. the only Universe
    of purpose i feel is dance.. even
    many people with challenges in life..
    can still wave their arms in air of loving
    US..
    i am the
    change i
    wanna BE..
    i AM DANCE..:)

    P.S. YOUR POSITIVE
    ENERGY IS INSPIRING..:)

  27. CC says:

    I like that you note that there is a special kind of delight that comes from getting involved in noble causes…when we unite with others to make a difference, there really is a unique kind of joy that comes from that!

  28. kanzensakura says:

    First of all, the rhyme and rhythm of this is so very good and tight. Next – the message. Indeed, if only we could be united and be there for each other. it is a wonderful thought and I hope one day, it will be a truth.

    1. adashofsunny says:

      Hello Kanzen,
