TETRACTYS

TETRACTYS

A Poem by Prateeksha Khot
"

This one I wrote especially for the Tetractys #3 contest : In the midst of numerous deadlines and just hours before the last date for the contest. This is my first attempt at it so bear with me

"

PEACE
more peace
is needed,
in these times of
violence, and bloodshed, and hatred.
Where despair and dejection are present:
drive them out with
the shine and
light of
LOVE


LOVE
in the
time of hate
is difficult
to preach, to follow, to spread everywhere.
But do remember that , no matter what,
HE is there to
give us what
we need :
STRENGTH


STRENGTH
is not
physical
only, it is more.
It is mental, it is emotional,
it is spiritual and much much more:
The will to do,
the right thing
in any
case.
