Inspiration

Ignorance,

Intoxicated by

Pride and Greed -

Alone or together;

And at times,

Flavoured by Anger,

Generates mistakes -

White or grey or black -

Which may be

Cumulative and contagious.

The ensuing storm of chain reactions

Rocks and twists and turns

Minds and lives ....


Amidst these chaos,

If sparkles of Inspiration

To improve and grow

Kindle a lamp within,

Thank His Grace

And your courage

And keep it

Glowing and glowing !!
