The power of thoughts

It is incredibly bizarre

How our thoughts have a pivotal influence

In our lives and the lives of others.

We think and our thought materialize,

Sometimes good and at other times bad.


Some men and women have such classy thoughts,

All positive, pushing ahead, dissipating the storms.

Some who think that life is a haphazard journey

Do so much harm to society

With the power of their negative thoughts,

Sowing seeds of discord and dis-empowerment.


Just a single thought in our mind

Can put up a palace of a rare design

And another thought makes the dream crumble

Like castles on the sands soft

Facing the sands of time.


A grounded understanding and awareness,

Emotional sensitivities of unity,

Empathy,forgiveness and understanding

Are all children born out of thoughts.

Group thinking, prayers,meditation,

Group work, discussions, projects,

All work out miracles.

Praiseworthy and commendable execution!


Think of the evil thoughts of hatred,

Self-aggrandizement at the cost of others,

Fake rules and false figureheads,

Feelings of abhorrence absolute,

All these germinate from our thoughts,

Creating wars and disasters,

Making humanity stand on shaky grounds.


Sincerely and objectively,

Let us take care of our thoughts

For they are powerful indeed.

Either we survive or we perish

Simply with the power

Of our thoughts.
