"My Friends, My Comrades" is an inspirational poem written for Marxists by the Marxist poet Jahved Shaheen, who died in 2008.
The poem expresses the Marxist belief in the inevitable progress of history toward a glorious Marxist future. This is shown, for example, in the final two lines:
We shall march forward
Towards a brighter world
Another tenet of Marxism the poem expresses is that victory over the forces of capitalism and other evils will not be won without struggle, sacrifice, and solidarity. This struggle will inevitably be bloody, because those who hold power will not willingly give it to the people. Therefore, the poem uses stirring language to help the masses involved in the struggle stay strong: the bodies of the comrades will "turn to stone," and though blood will flow, none of the efforts and sacrifices of the faithful will "go to waste." The blood of the comrades, the poem says, will make fields "blossom" with new life. The poem expresses solidarity through the repeated use of the pronoun "our."
The speaker uses imagery to direct readers to imagine a better future:
My friends, my comrades
The winds will sweep away
The black clouds,
The sun will shine
Every corner of meadows and forest shall light up
In sum, the poem expresses the Marxist belief in violent struggle and ultimate victory for the cause, ushering in a beautiful tomorrow.
