My Nobel Speech

My Nobel speech would be focused on humanity,

Where there is freedom of one and all, in unanimity,

Where there is freedom from bitter criticism or cynicism,

Where there is no prejudice, no hatred,

Where there is no division of caste, colour or creed,

Where there is love and respect, and goodwill,

Where there is compassion and understanding,

For women, children or the physically incapacitated,

Where cool serenity prevails,

Where the Lord, our Creator, is deeply revered,

With no bigotry but recognition for unity in diversity,

Where there is gratitude for all blessings received.

Indeed, my Nobel speech would be based on a peaceful world,

Where we can live, to feel and to imbibe

The air of peace and fraternity.
