Ruby Moses Ezekiel


The most powerful person


Wealth, power, respect,
…….He had everything.
Dozens of servants,
Working under him.
His each second,
Was worth a million.
He had the power,
Power to control people
And the power to command respect.

But this powerful person,
Who had dozens of servants
Was himself a servant! ! !
A servant to……
His addiction of tobacco!

Oh! what a pity,
A person so powerful
Was under the control,
Of something so petty!

Power lies……
Not in controlling others,
But in the control
Of Yourself and Your Will.
