Savita Tyagi

Powers Lie In Us

Endowed with knowledge we
Acquire the power of a counselor.

Cultivating equanimity we
Develop power of a negotiator.

Creating wealth we learn to
Value labor of a tradesman.

Building weapons we foresee
The power of a protector.

Resting in endurance is the
Secret power of survival.

Honoring work we cherish
Cooperative power of building.

Imagination is the miraculous gift
Lies in there the power of a dreamer.

Loving each other we know
The responsibility of nurturing.

Love is the foundation to build
Upon all the positives above.

    Very rightly you said Savita - true eye opener.

    I write some few lines from one of my poems.......

    Though we know what is good,
    We are inclined to the worst! !

    Humility with wisdom and knowledge
    Should be the burner in our hand. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. Very true said, Powers lie in us. Though our experiences in our lives we learn a lot and we keep on adding our knowledge to it. Imagination, intuition, love, pain, hatred, everything lies in us.
    Loved the lines.......
