Let Us Cook Together


Let us cook together,
A meal that has no spice called 'ego',
It lacks the bitter taste of 'jealousy'
Do not add the ingredient - 'hatred',

Let us cook together,
A meal that fills your stomach,
It satisfies your soul and heart,
Gives peace and contentment,

Let us cook together,
A meal that serves everyone's hunger,
It does not discriminate,
Whether you are rich or poor,

Let us cook together,
A meal as sweet as sugar,
With a pinch of salt to add ‘happiness’,
Prepared with ‘love’ and ‘kindness’,

Let us cook together,
A meal that can be eaten with a fork of ‘forgiveness’,
Or a spoon of ‘honesty’,
Let us cook together- something really 'tasty'.
