Poems and Translations

The Apostle of Non-violence *

A man of true principle
With spirit invincible
He sacrificed his pleasures
Faith and freedom were his treasures

No arms did he carry
No threats made him tarry
No torture or prison
Could change his decision

He led all protests
Despite threats and arrests
All races and creeds
Revered his deeds

He could not see his dreams come true
The whole world grieves his loss too
Though he cared not for fame
His name will indeed remain
In history, O Great Gandhiji

I wrote the poem for the Centennial of Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi, one of the leaders for the struggle of India’s Independence.
