Tolerance: A poem by Anjali Nithin Shenoy

The need of the hour is,

A taste of patience,
A pinch of tolerance,
A big broad mind,
A snippet of equality,
A wee more love,
A hint of compassion!

Do away with hatred,
Spread more smiles
Be more gentle,
Help the poor, 
Be more kind!

Judge a little less,
Don’t provoke any humankind,
Ego, selfishness, and intolerance
Are crimes of a kind!

All are born from the same source,
All will reach the same goal,
Caste, creed, color or religion,
Should not blur your vision!
