How to be the Thunder! (Magic and Alchemy)


You long to be 
a beautiful rainbow
on people's sky;
At times, the sun
Sometimes, the full moon
Also, a pole star.
But today I will teach you
how to be the thunder!

When people try to stifle your voice
On account of gender, caste and race
Roar like the thunder
Till they shudder
and realize their blunder;
Call out against any inequality
that you witness;
Leave your questions on 
their cloudy minds
like a bolt of lightening.
Be the thunder in their sky
Compel them to reply 
why do they even try
to stifle someone's voice
on account of gender, caste and race.
Yes, roar like the thunder
Till they shudder
and realize their blunder.
