Caught in the process



 Champion of the cause she was.
No child labor – for she cared for children,
Fighting very hard for the cause.

Visiting places,
Meeting likeminded people,
Presentation on cause,
Explaining,
Interviews,
Discussions on TV…….

So important was fighting....
For the cause,
It took most of her time,
Most of her energy.

She hardly had any time
For her children,

Champion of the cause she was.
Known as such.

It's good to champion others causes, but not at the cost of your own. You represented the subject matter very well.

I have been a person so caught up in what I cared about that I forgot to care for the ones I loved. I think in finding balance, we learn that idealism has a practical face. It must eat and be washed and laugh out loud before bedtime.

Beautiful poem.

I bow my head in front of her.

With a deep desire to see her and touch her lotus feet.
