The rich traditions
that thrived the times,
battling cultural differences,
climbing theological barriers
have the battle scars from the past

And the lore that remained alive
from several eons from the past
has the gravitas to hold a clan
to their roots
and the one who clings to it
and values them
always remain grounded
to the realities of life

  1. Our folks tales passed down through generations from eternity have so much in them. The richness, the lessons, the beauty! It’s incomparable right 🙂

  2. Shantanu – I love this poem. Stories have power and when we share them we preserve our culture and history. Beautifully written. -Jill
