Poem - Hamkhyal

Like-minded

If you love ideas, you are sure to find like-minded souls;

If you look, you will find they are out there.

It is misguided to think that one

Whose ideas are different is an enemy;

Discussion and debate are the fount of new ideas,

The blueprints for the creation of a new world.

If our thoughts are only echoes of others’ thoughts,

Then our civilization will be stuck in the mire,

And our issues and problems haunt us for generations.
