The Arab

I am an Arab yet what does that mean
An image construed deep in dream
For many have written but seldom lived
The life of an Arab to be forsaken with

Is the Arab a “we” or an “I”
A place indiscernible to the eye
Is the Arab condemned to politic and war
A doubting man never quite sure

Enigmatic the Arab though he can be seen
A distant image, a lost dream
A man adrift, forever defined
By empty souls and careless minds
