The world is too big - too unknown and events can often overwhelm us. What is it that makes us so special? If we are so insignificant - how come we still battle on? The poem below, I wrote about six years ago is valid at all times and for everyone. It is collected in the International Poetry Society Anthology.

by abhigyan jha

One man's conscience
Can bring an empire down.

One fleeting gesture
Can save a lifetime.

One simple idea
Can change the course of mankind.

One little lie
Can hide the whole truth.

One shining bullet
Can take another life.

One single arm
Can play the winning hand.

One sparkling river
Can bridge an entire land.

In this prodigal universe
You are the chosen one.

Just look in the mirror
And say I'm the one.
