The Future of Nepal
(For Janakee Gautam)

Once there was
A gentleman 
Who decided
Life could only
Be lived
Outside palace walls

Gautama Siddharta
Lived a simple life
And taught
You are a spirit
Which rules
This physical universe

From the roof
Of the world
Called Nepal
This simple thought
Brought culture
And prosperity
To part
Of this world

The essence
Of his message
Remains the same
This path back
Has been streamlined
But we will always remember
When the Enlightened One
Was here and where
As for once
It was and always is Nepal
