A Message For Future - Poem by Somanathan Iyer

Love yourself! Love thy parents! Love your siblings!
Love your neighbors! Love thy country! Love this world!
Be strong enough and healthy to protect yourself and others
Not mere a mass of landscape and terrain your country is
People of all walks represent your country
Do your might in letting others also progress
Your greed less progress leads to the country's progress
The combined progress of the country leads
To a place of honor among the world of nations
Set your vision for a mission of future
A future for a safe world for all the races
Lead an army without any harmful missiles
Let your missile be peace that is selfless and greed less
Make your brain shine with vision of global welfare
Modern technologies minimized the distances
Making the world look small with fast communications
Let the power of youth through out the world
Strive for peace and harmony among the nations
Like the air we inhale like the shine of sun and moon
Let the wealth be shared among every one in this world
When the grievance is out the hatred is out
When the greed is out the harmony is in
When the harmony is in the progress is natural
Let all the missiles of the nations transferred to a common pool
For the world should become strong with nations support
To thwart any attempt or attacks from the worlds unknown

    Unconditional love is a panacea for all ills inflicted by ourselves ever since the dawn of the so called civilization and the science of today. Well written sir. (Report) Reply
