The poem aims to give life lessons on being strong, following the example of Mahatma Gandhi, who once weak, went on to conquer all his fears.

He looks weak

Was fragile,

And a coward in many eyes.

He was afraid of speaking in front of others,

The tragedy was that he was a lawyer by profession.

Fearful of public speaking

He had a tough time practicing law.

Disappointed he came back to his town,

Felt incapable for awhile,

Yet he tried.

 

Overcoming his weakness,

He conquered his fears.

His strength came from his wisdom,

He built his strength based on different ideologies.

 

The key one is that,

If I am hurt it is only because of me.

I am giving the permission to people around

For hurting me.

This is the main philosophy of this feeble man,

which helped him to endure the pain,

And walk the path which is not chosen by many.
