Hold your Head High and Walk.

If you keep on trusting your guts,
When others are doubting you,
Hold your head high and walk.

If you are not involved in duplicity,
When so many others are deep in it,
Hold your head high and walk.

If you can have tolerance,
When others are tearing each other apart,
Hold your head high and walk.

If you can respect all
Irrespective of caste, colour and creed,
Hold your head high and walk.

If you have love, hope and faith,
In this terrible pandemic, spread the positivity,
Hold your head high and walk.

If you can still give after being spurned,
And can forgive and forget, why worry?
Hold your head high and walk.
