Mahatma Gandhi near Quotes
(A double Rhyme Royal)
Freedom is not worth the having…if not,
it includes the freedom to make mistakes.
Love the sinner, though not the sinner’s plot.
Give freedom of expression, for soul’s sake,
that persona’s fullness of soul not quake.
In attitudes silence, one finds clear light,
this man’s quest after truth, resounds in spite…
of one’s insistence on not doing right.
Weakness that be unable to forgive,
`Tis an eye for an eye, in righteous sight.
Victory’s violence means hate doth live,
source of war’s scarcity choose not to give.
Victor’s violence, tantamount defeat,
testify depth’s blood on war monger’s feet!
Dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi's
In honor of Dr Ram
