People I Miss

People I Miss

Gandhi spent time in South Africa,

and said no

to Christianity,

no wonder,

the inner strength of a giant,

peacefully standing up.

Chief Joseph had the wisdom

of ten men, and a gentle spirit,

hated fighting but fought,

to save his people, then

he stopped fighting, to save his people,

from annihilation.

Mother Teresa gave her life

away to the poor,

living among the dying,

the streets filled with compassion

when she walked by,

her wrinkled hand reaching everyone.

 

I never met them,

yet I miss them.

Strength and compassion,

both,

at the same time.
