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.
