Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 89

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


The story of Robert Bruce

flashes in my inward eye

for climbing the top

when I see you to try.

After attempting many times

you reach your goal.

You never care your defeats

as victory has conquered your soul.

For many times the enemies defeated Bruce,

who vowed not to war again

and left his sweet home

to take shelter in a dark den.

You earn the sole credit

to teach him to persevere.

He faced his enemies

and conquered them forever.

Failure may knock many times at my window,

success will surely enter once through the door.

I stick like chewing gum in my job

and observe the victorious ocean conquering the shore.
