Preface

The journey of life is not easy. It is full of hardships and challenges. Still we embrace it and move on with our sustained efforts. Sometimes, we get good results, sometimes not. Persistent efforts are the only way to progress in one's life. During this active phase of life sometimes we get angry due to situation or circumstances. I have raised same question in this poem. I do not have any answer to it but I believe that a person has to seek answer to this query by peeping inside himself.

Angry?

Getting angry sometimes

I was, brought up in a humble town,
In the serene hill environment abound.
I was from an ordinary family,
With plenty of water and air around.

I had the schooling, suffice for my purpose,
Enabled me to go for higher courses.
I had the honours in my college education,
Driving me to search some job sources.

It was quite a struggle to sail ahead,
Identifying opportunities in those times.
Only thing I could not understand,
Why I got angry sometimes.

I got a job exactly of my liking,
To teach my pupil in a school surrounding.
It was a fun to teach and to preach,
To young minds receptive to facts astounding.

My salary was meagre just to pull on,
Difficult getting other job in those times.
Only thing I could not understand,
Why I got angry sometimes.

Suddenly, I got an opportunity to grow,
Moving to a better job in a place away.
Salary was more and I liked the job,
Being my core subject it was a child's play.

But the place was remote and distant,
I was not in touch with my friends.
Loneliness grabbed me with time progressing,
Was not able to cope up with these new trends.

I again started my quest to change job,
Everywhere they asking a long experience of times,
Only thing I could not understand,
Why I got angry sometimes.

It went on like that for some more time,
Till I got an opportunity bright.
The new job was better in many respects,
Even financially it was having better prospects.

I was more or less stabilised in my life,
With ambitions full filled and no worrying times.
Only thing I could not understand,
Why I got angry sometimes.
