Nickels and Dimes

I await

Patiently to be served

The change!

The air is fresh

So is the linen

stale is the bread

So is the breath

Venturers out

Never return

Home stayers

Don’t progress

I await

Patiently to be served

The change!

Gandhiji is credited with the quotation: “Be the change you want to see in the world!”

A quick search on the internet will reveal that the credit does or does not go to Gandhi-ji.

However, the following lines:

Change can’t be given to you every time.

You MUST bring the change yourself.

are credited to none other than Ganpat, the bus conductor in Mumbai. A profound statement. The poem above is my own reflection on the change and the changes.
