Struggle

Tired and defeated I sat grim
On the stairs that ran in
Outward I looked and thought
Reminisced how long I fought

Of all the struggle I endured
Of all the dejection that poured
Of the bravery that was hailed
Yet everything I did, failed

Undressing my soul
Of the courageous cowl
Ridding my hands
Of the futile sands

Walked my father, to sit
By me and talk of some wit
'My son' he began
Across events galore he ran

'Life's often a test
Never stop to give your best
Its when the going is the toughest
Your goal may just lie next'

'Its when the ride seems uphill
The other side might be a treasure in veil
Its when struggle is all what you do
Know your strength is set to grow'

Despite defeat, loss and misery
You'll at the end find a great story
Just when you are about to give up
That's the moment you should buckle up

For more often than not
It's been testified a lot
Struggle is inevitable and surest,
Life's only way to make you strongest

  3. Good work Anupam. Capturing the essence in less number of words is really commendable.
    You have said it right, struggle does teach in unconventional methods. We just have to tackle it with an open mind.
    Keep posting :)
