A Gem In Us - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

Life taught us a lesson,
to appreciate with passion.
Life taught us a song,
that we have to sing along.
Appreciating souls are few,
the rest are at curfew.
Relax and think, we may understand,
When pollen appreciate a flower,
When a peahen appreciates a dancing peacock,
When a teacher appreciates a student,
When a leader appreciates the followers,
When I appreciate you and you appreciate me,
a gem of harmony evolves from our hearts.

    So much anguish could be avoided with the forming of a habit. Gratitude and appreciation.....important lessons for our children: -)
    Really well written indeed.
    Love it
