Wits of Supremacy


In the battle of wits for supremacy
A heated debate among contenders was on..

Anger boasted if he would so wish
He could make even empires vanish

Greed said no one could match his power
He could force even nations to go on war

Jealousy felt she is second to none
Quite capable of destabilizing anyone

Remorse was of view he is so powerful
He could make anybody's life miserable

Pity pleaded of her positive attribute
She is so kind to the poor and destitute

Forgiveness argued he had a big heart
So acceptable and adored by one and all

At the end, love spoke in a soft voice
In God's kingdom I have a humble place
And I just try to fill everyone's heart
With empathy, compassion and care a lot

(It's true when love is at work, all other emotions take a back seat. While it strengthens positive emotions, negative emotions retreat and take back seat)

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
