The Comforter

I wrap you around in my loving arms
Your cold and shivers my body warms

Your tired limbs get respite and solace
We enclose and hug without any bias

My job is to shelter all who seek a break
From life’s struggles that keep them awake

I perform my personal job with utter honesty
Yet cannot vouch for all my seekers, woefully

Present climate condones many ills unfortunately
Confused, double signals are given thoughtlessly

Children in innocence shuffle in listless ambivalence
Lessons learnt sync not with grown up acts in life’s balance

I shelter murderers, liars, cheats, saints and sinners alike
Yet long to comfort a Gandhi, an Einstein and their like

I pray to God for a revolution and sea change in the value system
Rewards for brave soldiers n sportsmen have not a glaring chasm!!

I wrap you around in my loving arms
Your cold and shivers my body warms

Your tired limbs get respite and solace
We enclose and hug without any bias

But as someone pointed out earlier, it is not really about fairness;
it is about taking finite resources  and applying them where they
will have the most effect.-Jim Walsh Irish, Politician
Today we are afraid of simple words like goodness and mercy and
kindness. We don’t believe in the  good old words because we don’t
believe in good old values anymore. And that’s why the world is sick.
Lin Yutang Chinese Author
Some values must be universal, like human rights and the equal
worth of every human being.- – Bjorn Ulvaeus  Swedish, Musician,
Fondly we think we honor merit then, When we but praise ourselves
in other men.- Alexander Pope English, Poet
Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you.
H. Jackson Brown Jr., American Author of ”Life’s Little Instruction Book”
