Treatise on an empress!!!
This is a treatise
On the unique empress
Of the kingdoms of kindness,
Born for, the world under duress.
She came to
All the way from
To teach and kindle knowledge,
To the ignorant, without any grudge.
She saw the suffering poor
And moved by the diseased without cure.
With humanity she drew them near
And attended to them without any fear.
She conquered the world, with guns of humility
And arrows of pity and piety;
Destroyed pains and nurtured amity,
Kept aflame love to eternity.
Lo! She came, she saw, she conquered,
As the dear Mother she will always be remembered!!
This is a humble offering to MOTHER TERESA!
