Intent – Ch#35 (Just one thing)

Whatever you do, do it with firm intent,

Not with abuse, nor rants, nor indignant shouts;

A whisper can reach more, with your argument,

The wrongful detention – no trial; no doubts.

Keep committed resolve, against the affray,

To fight injustice, at Guantanamo Bay,

Uncovering torture, assaults, violence,

While the kangaroo court proceeds, in silence.

Chapter 35 – Summary from the Wisdom of Nancy Hollander

The Post has been inspired by If I Could Tell You Just One Thing by Richard Reed.


Over the 62 days, in Dec and Jan, my challenge is to share the learning from each of the 62 chapters; hopefully in a poem, but who knows?  Follow my progress with the #JustOneThing Tag

Happy to explore what you make of the post in the comments below? 🙂

Delighted to be able to link this post to MMA Storytime’s Rispetto Poetry Prompt Challenge #10 Violence
