FREEDOM  



Freedom is a gift given by God
To humankind in every way
But taken by people
To let enjoy in a limited way

Freedom speaks of rights and contend
To individual and peoples way
To practice without much adore
Within the limits of humankind

Freedom to individual of differences
Every society should so find
In politics, social and economic way
To enjoy without shame

Freedom needs no qualifications
To restrict in people's way
By traditions of any kind
Or in getting in people's way

Freedom could only practice
with a system of justice
Transparent and tolerant
Without pride or prejudice

2 June 1997

Welcome to Maldives Shores. This is a place for poetry, thoughts, stories and more. The main aim of this website is to introduce Maldivian writing and artwork to the rest of the world. The thoughts expressed here are those of the poets/authors. Most are from the Maldives although we have a collection of poetry from contemporary poets from other countries

The Maldives people have always loved music, song and dancing. Here at Maldives Shores we try to give you an insight into their poetic talents.

OUR FEATURED POET is JADULLA JAMEEL
