TO MY LIFE
Youthfulness, spirit and courage must surround me
for helping to complete this eternal journey.
Sorrow, grief, loss and pain remain side by side,
these are trifle to those who enjoy this very ride.
Among all negative thinking is worse,
it can build hindrances along my course.
Determination, dedication and discipline must shine like day
to illuminate brightly my only way.
In vain I’ll never spend like a brute,
I’ll build a garden of roses along my route.
Whenever I’ll face some difficulty, I’ll attack
to smoothen forever my golden track.
I’ll move fast with time and age
to finish peacefully this wonderful voyage.
To move on and on I’ll keep my mind broad,
otherwise utter narrowness will shorten my road.
Whatever be the result I’ll face
to add enthuse to my race.
Whatever be the circumstances I won’t stop action,
this will boost me to run along right direction.
I’ll utilize the present, learn from the past days,
future will surely smile with my progress.
In the rays of creation I’ll take bath
to yield new fruits for sweetening my path.
I always learn to behave well,
this will bring others’ support during my travel.
I won’t sit for a moment
to provide momentum to every movement.
My tongue will taste the heaven’s wine
to shower success along my lifeline.
