Rule the Hearts

a poem by Devi Nangrani

Rule the hearts
Not the humans.
We are not warriors
To fight and conquer.
We are peace makers
To live and let live.
We are educators
But still incompetent
We still have to learn
To live
And let live.
To Love
And not hate.
To learn
And not Teach.
Learn from the child in the cradle
As he is our past
And we his future.
Let’s bring the freshness of breeze in our breaths
Let’s bring the colors of flowers in our attitudes
Let’s wipe a tear of the sorrowful eye in silence
Let’s learn to be givers
As we are still educators.
