    I somehow agree and disagree with you at the same time. This poem starts with great notes but it ends little differently. Also I have a strong objection of the phrase 'Third world.' Yes, this world is full of discrimination. But here you also seemed to discriminate by saying 'to support western empire.' You can't stop people to make their choices. Can you? If they like it then it's ok. East or west both have given their share to this civilization. So we need to accept it.
    Overall I've found it very strong and meaningful... relevant too. Wonderfully written. Only thing is I'm not blindly against the west. I hope you understand.

    Noor, I like the way you rant at the world by using the tabloid language. Too many of us are hypocritical in our words and actions leaving the real victims powerless and without a meaningful voice...until now?

    Well done this is really good! :)

    That's true but who listens? and who cares?
    People live as if they would live forever and forget the only truth in life which is DEATH..

    You abbreviated all what happens in the world in few line that really showed how people became so blind and greedy..

    "Stolen money does not warm anyone's pocket"

    Allah blesses who earns their money in a legal way and He increases that money as well,but who steals or deceives....etc, It's like who built castles in the air..They will lose it all in the end..
    And when Death comes,we take nothing..we will all alone...how ironic is this!!...As life isn't worth fighting each others for it..

    Great poem Noor..I love that kinda write:).

    Interesting poem,,
    It can have meanings as people interpret them differently, but that's the beauty of poetry.

    Being in America, I feel like I should be disappointed, how dare you slander our McDonald's and the like. Being a Muslim, I get my news from different resources other then the main media and am glad more and more people are joining the movement to remove blindfolds that seem to be slowly implanting themselves into peoples eyes, minds and hearts. I think some felt "disappointed" and are feeling this way because it's very blunt, but sometimes it's so frustrating what you hear in the media and what you feel, that the only way to put it is by just being blunt. Thanks for the good read.
