People who inspire

Ekta Mishra 1975 (Modinagar)

Long lost stories written on the sands of time...
Lives lead hereby, words that leave their mark...
Like a candle being lightened by another..
Like an additional feather in the cap...
People who inspire, continue to live
En route to their dreams that they nurtured
Whatever they wished their lives to be...
Their followers continue to bring their long lost unfulfilled dreams to come out to be true...
Here is something to be memorised
Once gone nobody returns back
Come what may Jesus, Buddha, Krishna...
Messangers to God
Or Gandhi, Nehru, Churchill or  Mother Teresa...
The ones upto whom the multitude looks up for directions
People who inspire, live on ...
Let us all endeavour to be such persons, the rising stars for all others to follow
