Somaliland land town of Gabiley is core of education, source of farming and mother of nationalism poetry


Our daily experiences has an impact with the we think normally, few days ago, I have learned a friend with exceptionally knowledgeable and brainy friend who originates from the agricultural town of Gabiley whereby the late the late great poet Abdillahi Timacade originates as well and situation has influenced writing short article about the late Timacade. According to Wikipedia Timacade was born in 1920 in the small town of Galooley which is situated near somaliland regio n of Gabiley in 1920 and subsequent living in Ethiopia and Djibouti in 1940 and 1950 respectiv ely, he returned his original home town Gabiley in an effort taking part for the liberation move ment against the British administration. This great leader has died on February 06, 1973 in Kala badh and buried in Gabiley. The ultimate measure of man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. A lead er like Timacade is one who sees more than others see who sees farther than others see, and who sees before others see. If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader like Timacade. We fight neither for glory nor for wealth nor honours; but only and alone we fight for freedom, which no good man surrenders but with his life.”Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand. If your action. Inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. Leadership consists of nothing but taking responsibility for everything that goes wrong and giving your subordinates credit for everything that goes well. Great leaders inspire. They maintain a hopeful attitude, even in the face of discouraging setbacks, constant criticism and abundant opposition. People don't follow discouraged leaders.. They follow those who persist with hope. Those who command themselves command others.

It's better to die fighting for freedom than to live life in chains."Every one of us knows that, th e late Abdillahi sultan Timacde was great Freedom fighter whose nationalist poems have deeply inspiring us. He was unbelievably true nationalist that all Somalis everywhere admire him reas on being free from tribalism mentality.A freedom fighter learns the hard way that it is the oppr essor who defines the nature of the struggle, and the oppressed is often left no recourse but to use methods that mirror those of the oppressor. This is the place that our great poet Abdill ahi Suldaan Mohammed 'Timacade' who is still recognized both Somaliland and Somalia alike as the source of Somali nationalism apart his nationalist poetry which is still admired by Somalis alike. The late Abdillahi Suldaan Mohammed 'Timacade was of those who lead the Somaliland liberation movements against the British colonial administration. Timacade was famous for his numerous poems and his joyful poetry to mark independence celebrations in June 26, 1960.His nationalist poem Kan Siib Kana Saaar still stands unchallengeable art of poetry in any time. This art of poetry has found its thought and the thought has found words. Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks poetry. Abdillahi Suldaan Mohammed 'Timacade poetry expresses emotions that we cannot be put into words.

Timacade poetry healed the wounds inflicted by nationalism. Late Abdillahi Suldaan Mohammed Poetry is all that is worth remembering in life .Timaccde Poetry is a mirror which makes beautif ul that which is distorted. His Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth. His Poetry is lang uage at its most distilled and most powerful. His poetry was nearer to vital truth than history, instead of combat fight, Timacade age can be used his poetry as bullet. His Poetry stills the mo ther-tongue of all Somalis alike. Abdillahi Suldaan poetry is the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own. His Poetry is the crown of literature which is admired by all of alike. Everyone time we listen his Poetry, we thinks reading a book or novel. Late timacde was soldiers using his poetry to liberate us from the British colonial administration. Each of his word bears its weight and that is why read his poems quite often. His poetry is a sword of lightning, ever unsheathed, which consumes the scabbard that would contain. His poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive, and widely effective mode of saying things. During the colonial days his Poetry was a political act because it involves telling the truth. During the colonial days his poetry is the lifeblood of rebellion, revolution, and the raising of consciousness. Every age has its own poetry; in every age the circumstances of history choose a nation, a race, a class, but late Timacade poems is poetry of all times.

Teach our children his poetry, it opens minds for them, lends grace to wisdom and makes them knowing the heroic figures marked by our history. A grain of his poetry suffices to season a ce ntury. Basically poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the pow er of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe. Late Ttimacade originates from So maliland town “Gabiley” which is heart of farming land. And everybody of us wants to support his own region and economy and farming. If we can preserve the land and if we can preserve the ocean, we all know, deep inside that we're doing the right thing. Coming from a farming bac kground, I saw nothing out of the ordinary in running barefoot, although it seemed to startle the rest of the athletics world. I have always enjoyed going barefoot and when I was growing up I seldom wore shoes, even when I went into town. The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.” teaching the children of Gabiley how to feed themselves and how to live in a community responsibly is the center of an education.” Good farmer is a craftsman of the highest order, a kind of artist. The farmer from Gabiley not only gives riches to his town, but riches all Somaliland. Farming is eating act.” “The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of all of us. Farming is like digging knowledge from the earth and Gabiley is a fountain of knowledge.
