During the times of stress of failure,

not a single penny to bluff the rumour,

obstacles ,the part of every action,

setbacks when finally rule the life’s section…

Friends lost,family stranded,

minutes of emptiness needs loads of courage,

to reinvent and re- live,

the moments of happiness in grief!

Legacy has nothing to laud,

inherited are  the qualities ..

of generics to applaud,

few can clasp and hold to them,

lest everyone gets lost in the same…

Those who live and struggle each moment,

still with the same kind of courage,

determination as strong as a rock,

patience that shall bow  thy God,

dynamic in nature,

composed  overall,

devotion to thy

and devoted to work,

they will have their day …

on the history of the earth!

    Very true! But the courage that it needs to fight back costs a lot! And it is in human to break down!
    Loved it that the ultimate answer to any Acid Test is Fight back! Lovely poetry!

    Very inspiring and pure truth.
    If u hold on during difficult moments trusting God and and working your way through with His devotion in your heart….your dawn will come indeed.
    God helps those who help themselves.

      yes ! this is as true as our breath of life..practically it seems difficult ,but if once decided and acted upon,it helps in our way.

    Faith is always the strength and power that moves mountains! Not many have such belief to be able to stand such trials and tribulations as they rise…but your spirit is always ablazed with such a burning desire to always move forward through thick and thin times! When these things happens it really helps us to understand what, a kind, loving, caring person can do while inspiring others with what comes from your heart’s experiences and joy and pain. Very beautiful message…God is always with you!

    • soumyav September 4, 2012 / 10:10 am

      Iam overwhelmed with your blessings of words that shower here.It indeed is very difficult to go through thick times without the faith being as a rock…and we without clinging to it cannot surpass all the difficulties..Thanks Wendell for interpreting the lines in beautiful way.
