Kalam, A Legend…

You were born in a place

Blessed with the incarnation of the Almighty

To bring back peace among the beings…

You were down to earth

Neither overwhelmed by the victories,

Nor saddened by the failures….

You struggled your own way out of hardships…

By treating these two imposters, just the same

You adorned your crown…

With two primal virtues: patience and respect…

You’ve been an inspiration

To the aspiring youth of our nation…

You were kind and compassionate

Uncaring of personality or attire…

Hiding the real charm in your heart

By lending a helping hand to the needy…

You rejuvenate yourself, by a curve, the smile…

You’ve been a great leader

And a great follower of moral values…

You were a man of integrity..

Who knew no difference between the religions…

You were a man of creative thoughts and action…

With passion perseverance and hard work until success…

That transformed the lives of millions…

You were a true legend who made history….

By being a pioneer in technological innovations…

You’ve set a benchmark and left your footprints…

To follow, in the sands of time…

And ignited a spark in the minds of youngsters…

Of your dream, a visionary India 2020!!!

Which by your grace, would happen soon…

May you be born again….

Blessed with the wings of fire…

To rise high up the sky…

And to enlighten the awaiting millions…

With your words of wisdom!!!

 

This poem is a tribute to the 11th President of India, A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, who died in July.
