Ariadne’s Notes: We are honoured to present a 22 year old medical student from Egypt whose powerful and moving poetry reaches out to the world. Another talented and empowered youth poet who will make a positive difference in the world!

She writes:
“My name is Mahinour Tawfik
 A 22-year old medical student in Egypt studying to become a psychiatrist.
 Was educated in British school, Grew to be fond of English Literature especially poetry.
Went through very hard times, had almost given in to pain until poetry healed me
As a medical student I believe, as medicine heals bodies, poetry cures souls
I had several chances to participate in poetry anthologies
I dream to become a world known poetess, a very successful psychiatrist and to travel around the world.”

The day that never comes

Will this day ever come?
When I regain back my plundered freedom
Be treated as the gracious human I was created
Not  merchandise in an auction debated

Will this day ever come?
When the Devil’s power ain’t worshipped anymore but God’s
Virtues & righteousness are the undefeatable power
Not tyranny, injustice & oppression that devour
Innocent Souls, in massacres creating oceans of bloods

Will this day ever come?
When corruption is stood up to, to villainy we shout   (no)
Without being the last time to breathe and say so
Right path is being followed without being afraid
To be blamed and pay for sins others made

Will this day ever come?
Guilty are not the winners
Honorable are not the sinners

Will this day ever come?
When not another innocent soul dies
No more mothers ‘weeps, fathers’ cries
Grieving their murdered– kidnapped child on his way
To school or to the churches and mosque as they go to pray

Too much corruption has undertaken
Will conscience ever be awaken
Will this day ever come?
When I break free from hell and its demons

Open my eyes,
Watch for the first time the dead sun rise
Upon a world of righteousness, goodness and morality
Where evilness fades away as well as tyranny
Or will I be cursed by my own child?
Blamed from bringing him into this cannibal wild

Mahinour Tawfik (C)

    Mahinour
    your poem is wonderful, extolling the nonvirtues of the human race – the lies – the corruption – the evils that mankind perpetrates against mankind. All for the sake of ????? I hope we read and hear more of your work.
