a poem by Jayati

Be a gentleman. Have the world
Lay at your feet with love and affection.
Yes, you can. Prevail. Not with coercion
Dwell in hearts of men and women but with genuine concern.
Be an opportunist
Grab a win. It’s no sin
With enemies, to shake hands.
Yes, you can. Control. Not with hate
Having faith to the universal law of nature
That say, ‘Give and Take.’
Be a pioneer. Provide
Food for thought
Replace, darkness, ignorance
With brilliance, intelligence, good word.
Yes, you can, conquer but not with arrogance.
Build a bridge, heart to heart, journey
Weary miles, wearing smiles.
Be humble, pay attention.
Be a gentleman.
