Powers Lie In Us - Poem by Savita Tyagi

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!

    Very rightly you said Savita - true eye opener.

    I write some few lines from one of my poems.......

    Though we know what is good,
    We are inclined to the worst! !

    Humility with wisdom and knowledge
    Should be the burner in our hand.

    Beautiful poem. Very true said, Powers lie in us. Though our experiences in our lives we learn a lot and we keep on adding our knowledge to it. Imagination, intuition, love, pain, hatred, everything lies in us.
    Loved the lines.......

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