The Mahatma


The Mahatma


It takes guts

To tell no to a world power,

Not by threats, or terror.

A mere smile, a kind resolve,

Was enough

To set the sun

On an empire that ruled.

Greater is the power

To not hit back,

To take a hit,

To not avenge,

To spare a life.

To the man

Who showed us all

You and I can live together,

As neighbours on cordial terms,

Even with our differences.

There is enough for the need of all,

Yet not enough for greed of one.
