Yes, I am Gandhi

Born on a special day

When the whole world comes together

To rejoice for another year

Another year is no more and

Another one imminent.

 

What is your foresight

In this coming year?

Who else will achieve greatness

Who else will achieve grand things

In this approaching year?

 

Mahathma came to this earth

And planted some everlasting seeds

Seeds of love, joy, and freedom

He changed the karma of humanity

He was called Gandhi, yes Mahathma.

 

Some say he was born of Indian descent,

I simply say he was born of humanity

He was a selfless and gallant leader,

He taught the world to resist oppression

He did it with love, meekness and humility.

 

When he was assassinated his body died

But his spirit never died with him

He unselfishly gave it to me and

Said give it to the whole world and ask:

Why does humanity still kill each other?
