Stand up, and Move Ahead

Everyone tries to work hard and get success and prosperity in one's life. That is what most human beings do and teach and preach to others also to follow that. Unfortunately, there is no direct one-to-one relationship between the hard work done and the results obtained. This is interpreted by many as the fate factor or destiny. When our achievements are not commensurate with our efforts then a feeling of setback or pessimism might be created in our lives but that would not solve the problem or give any resolution to the difficult situation. The only way is to revive oneself and start fresh for the struggle ahead. That is the only mantra that could help a person to try to succeed in life. This poem is an effort to try to give this message.

Stand up, and move ahead

People make efforts in their lives,

For bringing prosperity and raise.

But everyone is not so lucky,

As most of the results fade.

Disillusioned by failures and setbacks,

They often stop trying further.

They become the neglected lot,

Making excuse and faint murmur.

There are some, though a few,

Who do not see the negative side.

They revive and prepare themselves,

For the ensuing difficult fight.

Efforts do not guarantee success,

But are necessary for our lives.

They are the building blocks of ambitions,

To keep our aspirations alive.

Failures are not the end of the tunnel,

They are actually the milestones.

For the coming journey of life,

Traversing to prosperous zones.

Stand up, and move ahead,

With the same zeal and vigour.

The world would recognize you,

As an avatar in a new figure.
