Powers Lie In Us Poem by Savita Tyagi

Powers Lie In Us

Rating: 4.8


Endowed with knowledge we
Acquire the power of a counselor.

Cultivating equanimity we
Develop power of a negotiator.

Creating wealth we learn to
Value labor of a tradesman.

Building weapons we foresee
The power of a protector.

Resting in endurance is the
Secret power of survival.

Honoring work we cherish
Cooperative power of building.

Imagination is the miraculous gift
Lies in there the power of a dreamer.

Loving each other we know
The responsibility of nurturing.

Love is the foundation to build
Upon all the positives above.

Resting in endurance is the... that's the one line i have trouble understanding. Building weapons we foresee The power of a protector. ..............this could be taken two ways, i think. a country might build weapons in order to protect itself, OR it might build weapons to defeat another country which tries to protect itself. in either case, whoever is in charge of the human species should have given/should give more thought to how to eliminate the desire of any nation (or person) to need weapons against other humans! against flies, YES! flyswatters are nice to have in the summer especially! ! some good observations you have here! bri :)
