Gandhi - Poem by Matthew Holloway

Gandhi turned the other cheek
Brought an entire nation to its knees
Taught that peace can be the victor
A lesson from this must be learnt
Not to be dragged into wars
The power games of hatred
A smile into silence speaks
That salvation is calm
Bitter words lead only to regret
And such thoughts to loss
Why fight when we can learn
To accept the differences of man
Gandhi fell in victory
That his message lives
Only peace offers prosperity
