the beginning

from the
confluence of oceans
to the
crown of mountains
we walked

through rain
through snow
we walked
through blazing heat
through biting cold
we walked

through pain
and the scary dark
we walked
through their canards
and lies
we walked

spreading love and hope
we walked
dispelling hate
showing courage
we walked

on the road of possibility
we walked
finding space for love
we walked
the path of peace
lit up by his optimism
we walked

the tricolour unfurled
flies proud and free
stout hearted souls salute
pay respect to thee

the yatra is over
some may feel
I say
we are just
getting started

Peace, Love, Respect. dev barem karu RahulGandhi
