Traverse the inner wynds
Of your heart and mind
Seek and you shall find
Your own invincible light.

Let the fireflies of wisdom
Gleam your entire being
Wipe the veiled inky spots
Rise, be enlightened.

This festival of lights
Take an oath for life
To be the glowing force
To spread smiles all along.

Cast away your fears
Cultivate kindness, empathy
Vow to make this human life
Truly worth its while.

Akin a ray of the mighty sun
Spare not any unlit speck
Quell all ill wills, hatred
Become the epitome of love.

From business writing to writing poems and short stories, Sheetal Agarwal loves penning her thoughts on almost everything.
