A festival that has the whole country celebrate
Happiness that has the entire community articulate
The joy of togetherness, with those who matter
Bitterness is what we see all around us scatter
A festival that binds adults & children alike
Love the way the balance we have to strike
Between who we are and are striving to be
The challenge for us to be authentic is the key
The channeling of our energies to bring together
That space of positivity, camaraderie and cheer
The festival is just a reason and a release to drop
All anger, spite & negativity in the air to a complete stop.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
