*He did not need his specs to see
His vision of such clarity
Of what we needed to be free
To live our lives in harmony
Send hate to an obscurity
View war as a perversity
Stand up, but with passivity
Choose all your choices peacefully*
This painting was inspired by the wisdom of a great man of peace, Mahatma Gandhi. How quickly society has forgotten the wisdom he strove to bring to us, and the sacrifices he made of himself in doing so. In a nutshell, Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy was one of equality for all, peace, and social development with respect and dignity for the poor.
I hope this tribute artwork has helped you to remember and reflect on Gandhi’s important messages to us all, especially with the increasingly violent and troubled times we are living in.
