The Light of Love, Hope and Unity

Spreading love, burning the light of amity,

Much can be achieved to bring harmony and unity.

Today we are living in a world filled with spiritual darkness.

Why not be a shining light and bring brightness

So that God, the light of the world, shining through our lives,

Can bring light into the darkness wherever He has placed us.

The lamp of the Lord searches the spirit of a man,

His ability to share hope, joy and faith, during his life span,

As we were designed to shine in UNITY. Like the flashlight,

Let our healthy mind, body and spirit stay bright.


Look to the star struck heavens, sparkling!

By the galaxy of stars, the darkest nights can go twinkling.

So, can we meet someone at the crossroads of life,

Cheer up the individual, removing his/her strife.

Besides, by adopting the light of tolerance of differences

Of caste, colour and creed and races causing divisiveness,

We boost total healing and peace.

And, filling the dark places of our hearts with light,

We can dispel the dreary darkness to reach the Supreme light,

And this luminescence, all around us transmit.


Fortunately, many, the precious light on us, bestow.

To parents, kinsmen, and teachers much we owe,

For the warmth of this luminosity.

The light emitted by them can mould the young minds certainly

Into rational beings, lessen egocentric conflicts definitely

Replenish and nurture their inner world vitally,

To prepare them as citizens of tomorrow assuredly.

Briefly put, fellowship, warmth of love and hope, definitely   

Remove much acrimony in us, making life worth living,

Surrounded by the essence of mutual understanding.
