As the ‘World Poetry First Youth Poet Ambassador to India’ and a ‘World Poetry Youth Team member’, I am pleased and extend a hearty welcome everyone to the World Poetry Youth Team Grand Opening, here at the University of British Columbia.
The world is continuously evolving and so its earthly beings. The present world is gripped with ‘materialism’ and sordid activities of ‘terrorism’. It is peace which will act as a guiding source of light for us to dispel such darkness. I hope today’s event will bloom with a new hope of optimism and spread new rays of joy across the hearts of we youth, the creators of beautiful tomorrow.
I thank Ms. Ariadne Sawyer, President –World Poetry Reading Series and all volunteers for working round the clock and making it possible finally to instil the bud of confidence and motivation within each of us present here. I pray to the Almighty that this ‘bud’ never dies and let millions of flower dressed in selfless love and peace emerge from it.
Peace is multi-dimensional and its dimension can just not be defined in a single term.
Please accept my best wishes for the future and I hope everyone has a wonderful time. Before I sleep, let me voice my heart strings.
Strings of hope oscillate in my womb
broken words of belonging-ness flutter together
rays of oneness breeze through
layers of love channelize all over
for Undying Peace, now but a Generation Away.
