That one moment

When you stop and think about your life,
When your life seems to be stagnant,
When you do not know where you are.

Stop and look around,
You are not alone,
You will not walk alone.

Though the path maybe rocky,
Hilly and cumbersome.
Look up and reach for the stars.

You are created for greatness
Reach for it!
The Hero lives in you!

PS: “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deutoronomy 31:6


When nature wakes us up…..

What shall we tell them?
That we knew not?
That we cared not?
That our hunger dictated?
Or that we hoped all would change?

They will judge us
When they see all this destruction
When they see how selfish we are
When they see what we could have done
What shall we do then?

We will tell them
That we did it for them
That we knew but chose to ignore
How sorry we are
That we hope they forgive us!

Let us keep it green and clean!

PS: This poet feels that not enough is being done to protect the environment. We need to do more so that it is preserved for our children. So that they too can save it for their children…That is how legends are created!
Maybe then, when they (our children ) remember us, they will smile!
