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.

The Post has been inspired by If I Could Tell You Just One Thing by Richard Reed.
Over the 62 days, in July and August, 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
