Strength - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

Strength is beautiful which have lot of energy
Strength is powerful which rules the world
Strength have the capacities to lead us all
Strength becomes resultant factor of success
Moral strength seems to be the most appreciable
Truth becomes the elixir of strength we see
The man who follows moral and physical strength
Conquer the world around him without a battle
Through the epic stories of ancient civilizations
Stories of strongest rulers and individuals
Characters of purity of strength and conscience
saved the world in extreme chaos of destruction
Alexander the great who tried to conquer the world
was a roll model of physical and moral strength
He conquered the countries one by one
boosting the energies of the comrades by his vision
used weapons and bloodshed in such necessity
otherwise conquered the kingdoms in sheer wisdom
He came to meet an Indian King in Purooravas
Who his army conquered in the war face to face
The Greek army brought the Indian king in captivity
Who showed extreme patience and cool mindedness
The great world conqueror asked the king
What Purooravas you expect from me as a subject
Whom I conquered in this war between the two
Expecting for the life and praying for clemency
As usual he saw in different kingdoms he captured
The brave king asked the emperor to treat equally
And behave with him as a gentle king to another one
Showing extreme decency of his kingdom, power and prestige
Having such a rare experience of decency from the king
It is said he asked to let him free to his will.
How nice is the story of moral strength
when it is combined with the physical strength


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Physical strength without moral strength nothing conquers. Great kingdoms lost not only due to war but also losing the conscience and justice and moral strength so says the histories. A poem with bit of story of Purooravas the great Indian King.
