‎إلى أين تتجه إليه تلك الخطوات؟
‎وما دافع ذاك الجبين الذي يقطر عرقًا؟

يعبر المارة كل يوم أمام عيني عبدالرحمن ..
بمختلف طبقاتهم .. يملأون الحاضر.. ينشدون نهضة المستقبل
تتساءل ذاته عن موقعها في خارطة الوطن ..

ساعات طوال ..
تندب النفس حظها ..
يجثو اليأس على صدرها وتتساءل ..
ثم ماذا؟

عمر يجوب الأرض ..
يقرأ وجوه الركاب .. يصمت حتى يتكلموا .. يتكلم إن أرادو
يتساءل .. ثم ماذا؟

حنان .. تستقبل آلاف الحالات .. بحمولاتها العصبية ..مشدودة الأعصاب ..
ترمم نفسها ألا تنحني" .. وأحياناً تميل لكفة "ثم ماذا" ؟


أحمد .. مشوار الألف خطوة بدأ معه .. جيل يتلوه جيل مر .. وهو ثابت لا يتحرك
يتساءل أيها العابرون أنا هنا في ذات المكان وذات الدور .. أصبحت سلماً للأجيال لا سلماَ للذات ..
ثم ماذا؟

لهؤلاء ولك ولكل الجنود المجهولين في يومنا الوطني نكرمهم ونشد على أزرهم قائلين:
أثر كل مواطن .. يُرى
أثر كل مواطن لا يزول
بهتمكم نصل.
Translation - English

Where do these footsteps go?
And why is that forehand covered in sweat?
People rush past Abdur-Rahman every day
From every walk of life, living life to the fullest and looking forward to a prosperous future.
But he wonders what his place is from the nation’s point of view

He spends long hours
Regretting what could have been,
And despair drives him to wonder
What comes next?

Omar drives everywhere.
Reading his passenger’s faces; he says nothing unless they speak, speaking if they want him to
Wondering what comes next.

Hanan stressfully takes care of thousands of patients, straining her nerves.
She takes hold of herself to keep from breaking under the pressure, and sometimes she has to ask, ‘what comes next?’


Ahmad – the students’ journey of a thousand miles begins with him.
He wonders, “All these generations, have come and gone and here I sit.
I have become a ladder for everyone else to climb, leaving no way for myself to ascend.”
‘What comes next?’ he asks.
For these people and for you, and all silent heroes in our National Day, we honor them and want to reassure you by letting you know

“The impact of each citizen is visible
The impact of each citizen durable"

With your determination, we reach our destination.”
