Ahimsa 14 - The Path Of Human Dignity

Poem By Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon

To stand up and face the world,
To break free from the shackles of fear,
To bravely raise the voice for every worthy cause,
To defy the atrocities committed by man!

Dangerous trends that can set fire to golden dreams,
Disturbances tearing the human race to pieces,
Dignity of man questioned through strife and massacre,
Denial syndromes refusing to acknowledge the truth!

Let me rise up to fight for human rights and freedom,
Let me not stoop down heartless and callous,
Let me not stand like a dumb fool watching others strike,
Let me condemn every act of hatred and violence!

Let us protect and preserve the world together,
Let us join hands to work and grow together,
Let us believe in the strength of love and compassion together,
Let us follow the path of ‘Ahimsa' with human dignity!
