Myriad Emotions

As I look at you, your deformed body
I feel myriad emotions
pity for a moment
a desire to help in another
a sudden realization
then enters me
you are more powerful
than I am
you have the power of the spirit
But yes, I can empower you
with the gift of love and to live with dignity.

  1. A stirring poem, Hemani! Good luck with your work at Anandi. I hope your poem raises awareness of mental health illnesses and the fact that it could happen to anyone. I also hope that it helps remove the unnecessary stigma associated with it in many sections of Indian society.

    Best wishes with the humanistic and empowering work you and your team are carrying out!
