The Invisible Layer

Where are the Intellectuals?
Where are those who are associated with the use of the mind, those who help the triumph of the rational over the animal side of man?
Where are those who use the mind creatively?
Can anyone find them?
Can anyone see them?
Can anyone hear them?
You can stay colourless for as long as you like, Mr Invisible, but we know you are there.
We even know why you chose to be invisible.
Can you be invisible forever?
You know that we are helpless without you, and your absence allowed everyone of us to feel superior.
I am not blaming you for anything you did not do except for being absent.And I am not blaming ourselves for feeling superior we were alone, we enjoyed it, and sadly we now know it is very costly.
We are extremely young, irresponsible, immature, nave, and even aggressive.
Mr Invisible, we need you.
We have almost everything. We have qualifications, experiences, wealth and even systems.
Mr Invisible, it is not what you know. It is what you do with that knowledge.
Mr Invisible, we are all eyes and ears hoping for your presence to be felt.
I want you to know that we miss you and we have paid.

Adel Ahmed
