Jamila Smiles


Poem on exhibit at the grand war Museum on New Malaysia. The poem was found on the body of Sgt. Kazem Al Saher after the siege of the capitol of New Gaul during the great war. The Franks in a desperate attempt to dislodge the confederate troops used Nuclear weapons on their own planet. The desperate bid failed and the capitol was captured.

I am down in the muck
Waist deep in blood and mud
And then Jamila smiles
And I don’t care anymore.

The sky lights up
A Sun has been created at midnight
A thunderous wave of wind
Beats me down

And then Jamila smiles
And I don’t care

The pain fades away
I feel myself becoming lighter
And the darkness
Begins to close in
And then Jamila smiles
And I don’t care


It is believed from where Sgt Kazem Al Saher body was found that he survived the injuries and radiation poisoning from the nuclear blast for several days.

Sgt Kazem Al Saher possibly wrote the Jamila poem as a farewell message to his fellow Franks or it could be a visual deciphering, recording his last hour on planet earth.

Hi Ed - you left a comment on my site so I thought I'd check yours out. This sci-fi is great; I'm bookmarking this. Where did it come from - have you created this yourself?
