“Here is thy footstool and there rest thy feet where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

When I try to bow to thee, my obeisance cannot reach down to the depth where thy feet rest among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

Pride can never approach to where thou walkest in the clothes of the humble among the poorest, and lowliest, and lost.

My heart can never find its way to where thou keepest company with the companionless among the poorest, the lowliest, and the lost. [ Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore ]

And in the heart of every twilight
where dreams are measured beyond sleep
where darkness has no forgiveness to offer the dawn of resplendent light
where every birth is bestowed the right to live, but bequeath the urge of plight
I come to offer prayer for our forefathers
who drifted to lands afar unknown in sight.
(Leonard Dabydeen)
