LUDE: THE OMNIPOTENT
Dissuasion trails the coattails of persuasion
In various forms or manners –
And the resultant expressions may appear
In the news under political banners!
Thus, cycle of life drenches in emotions
With joy, or at times, in sorrow –
And civilizations spin the threads of disparity
With a deep sigh for tomorrow!
In our interdependent world today,
Molasses of bonding needs to flow –
With the aroma of strong leadership,
Sunk in the feelings of humanity to glow!
Society baggage will remain in society,
To manipulate the ardent soul –
While the hope for excellence would be a mirage,
And take away, the progress toll!
By virtue of birth, we are all members
Of the human race where diversity is a vital issue –
And it blooms like flowers in an arboretum,
To promote own culture and mental tissue!
The strength of any nation and world community
Comes from our diversity as a primal source –
To build the bridges of unity and cooperation,
Needed for the progress of humanity with a force!
Well, as a crusader for the promotion of excellence
And human rights, we must confess –
About the need for laying the platform to speak.
To act, to grow, to live, and nothing less!
So let us continue to seek cooperation instead of confrontation,
Tolerance without violence, to embolden the rays of hope –
And the celebration of today will be omnipotent
With persuasion of excellence for humanity to cope!!
