The track to obtain human right

Is a long march and a marathon.

Will the tape ever be breasted by

Those who aspire not perspire in

Pursuit of their particular race?

There are no medals to be won

In this contest except one prize

Valued far beyond gold: freedom.

interesting concept to talk about frank. as long as we have laws we are not completely free. but without respect we have no honor or dignity for others and we walk over others honor and dignity everyday. to me avoiding respect takes away from freedom even more then manmade laws.

 

i enjoyed your oem. it made me reflect and think deeply and heavily about humanitairn rights civil rights etc...

Very good start in this nice poem with good subject Frank

 

Especially I like the ending part. It's very wise, deep and moving

There are no medals to be won

Valued far beyond gold: freedom.

 

Yes there are no medals - freedom is one of the best dreams of this humanity through the centuries

 

Much enjoyed in this read.

Frank, marathon is an apt metaphor. I like the opening myself.
