An Ode For A Man Of Men - Poem by Ponniah Ganeshan

Abdul Kalam, the man of dream
Lived a perfect life,
Creating beauty out of chaos
Is no more now in our midst.

It is the rule applicable to all
With no exception
Whether you may be a king
Or a man in the street.

I always focus on days
That are coming around
As I move and move
Yesterday was not like today
And today will not be as tomorrow
Everything changes
From moment to moment
The man who was alive yesterday
Is no more today.

This is the world of life where everything
Is changing from moment to moment
I take my hat off to you sir
Abdul Kalam for the life you led humane
And shared, …..AMEN!
