Yoga 12 - Leave Behind Anger & Leap Forward With Forgiveness
On the last day of the year,
by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
I would like to leave behind
One big emotion,
Anger is like a venomous serpent
That coils around you,
Squeezes and spills out of you
The worst ever poison.
Retiring old year,
Retreats into the dark yesterday,
Never to come back,
Vanishing into the realm of memory.
The world shook with anger in 2017
The terrorist attacks,
The religious discord,
The human hatred.
Let go off the dangerous weapon of anger,
Leave behind painful provocation of vengeance,
Listen to the people with voice of reason and justice,
Leap forward with forgiveness, tolerance, and love.
