Everlasting Giants

Everlasting Giants

 

Dr Sima Farshid

 

Dr Sima Farshid is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Islamic Azad University, Iran. She has been teaching various literary courses for the last 20 years. “Everlasting Giants” is a symbolic poem that yields itself to multiple layers of signification and interpretation. It is obvious that the giants are not giants as we know them. On the one hand, the poem puts in perspective the different phases in man’s growth and evolution. On the other, it ridicules the inconsistencies in human judgment and evaluation.

 

From the moment

you learn

to say Dad,

a lot of giants

stand against you.

 

How they’re alive,

you’re never told.

Thinking of them,

not your right;

merely obey

to the end of time.

 

Everlasting giants

are always there.

Unlike those of epics,

no hero defeats them;

fighting with them is futile.

 

But after some years,

a miracle happens;

old enemies

begin to speak

by your own tongue.

 

They never forsake you!
