Patience Pays - Poem by MOHAN THULASINGAM

Fossil turns into Oil and Coal
Sand becomes Soil
Mulberry grows as Silk
Dust shines as Pearl
Rock changes to Marble

Devotion yields Liberty
Hard-stone sculpted to Beauty
Tradition grows to Charity
Crane prays for prey

Multi-color unfolds from dirty Caterpillar
Multi-storey emerges from sturdy Mortar-Pillar

Edifice is built over Time
Pebble is formed by Time
Genius shines through Time.
