Blinding Light

Poem by: Sambelini

Summary

Discusses the confusion, limitation, and unequaled love for a dictator.Was written as a relation between George Orwell's 1984 and his Animal Farm. Just for the record: I am not a fascist. This is written from the characters' perspective and therefore embodies their blindness and willingness to follow.

Very simple poem (I will tell you now, I'm not really a poet), I actually found it from what I'd written in my Grade 11 English class, for a project on 1984 and Animal Farm.

We have not lived or loved or lost.

We had nothing, yet paid the cost.

We are not, but seem to be.

We are not slaves and still not free.

 

Our eyes can see but we are blind.

Our bodies divide, not our mind.

Our thoughts are one, we all believe.

Our sense aside, our thoughts we leave.

 

We will forget if that you will.

We have no need to fight or kill.

We’ve time that will ne’er be our own.

We’re lead the way, but never shown.

 

One voice, we scream in foreign tongue,

One song, with pride and strength and lung.

One great joy; no victory.

One altered past; no history.

 

Many stars around our world.

Many a deep and hidden pearl.

Many clouds in day and night.

Many an unseen ocean fright.

 

We have a voice and yet no words.

We follow one, as loyal herds.

We believe he knows what's best.

We do not fight; our minds at rest.

 

Their rule shall never meet an end.

They are most worthy to defend.

There is no way to hide or seek;

They’re always watching, proud and meek.

 

We know they will forever last.

We feel safe without a past.

We give our hearts, our lives, our all.

We praise him, may he never fall.
