Candle still lights
Wind still blows.
Love between our hearts
Even now flows.
“With every true friendship, we build more firmly the foundations on which the peace of the whole world rests.”
– Mahatma Gandhi.
Peace begins with the individual, it is voluntary.
Holy deity beautiful, mother of mine ,
Where were you lost when all day long I did whine?
Those live giving hands of yours didn’t they tremble ?
When I did beg for life in a voice so humble .
The cry of the girl child who was silenced inside the womb.
The slight sound of pages turning after a shootout at a school.
