“Just One” Written by Unknown Author, Presented by: Mohd Arshad Qasmi

A very inspirational poem titled “Just One” written by unknown author that talks about the ‘The power of one.’ It has been well said: “Never question the power of one! Throughout history it has been the actions of only one person who has inspired the movement of change.” The poem is:

The Power of One

One flower can wake the dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring
One song can spark a moment

One smile begins a friendship
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at sea
One word can frame the goal

One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes out darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom

One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show care

One voice can speak with wisdom
One heart can know what’s true

One life can make a difference
And that life can be you!

Martin Luther King, Jr said:

“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don`t have to have a college degree to serve. You don`t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”

May we all recognize our own ability to change this world for the better and may we all desire to use our “Power of One” to do just that.
