To Go On.....

The clock is ticking,

“Wipe the dust”,

Dawn is closing,

It’s time to run.


The mark you’ve to kiss-

Lies far away;

So run without a pause,

“Leave a mark on your way”.


But beware of some obstacles,

Some mighty challenges en route the mark;

Hurdle bars which might seem so weak,

But which virtually sets a peak so steep.


It’lll put you down-

To flounder in the low dust;

It’ll seem impossible to counter-

And’ll entice you to hopelessness.


But never give way to lose yourselves

Either to failure or inhibitions;

Just raise your head and analyse,

Edify yourselves and realize,

That duress of pressures can’t sublime-

True spirit, and the desire to conquer-

The peak of life’s ubiquitous driver-‘Hurdles’.


Courage and confidence are a sacrosanct,

Will and desire shall drive you forth.


“Resume my friend…”, the cheers rose,

From the stands of life’s support-

Parents, Friends, Relatives and Foes,

Never give in to feel that you’re dross.

Go on, run unabashed,

Breaking open your heart’s ulterior chambers-

To release dismal emotions.


The hurdle will then appear to you-

As a mere puddle,

Which you can cross effortlessly,

Like reading a didactic rhyme.


Remember, this is just one-

Of many yet to be encountered,

On your trail to the mark.


Never let yourself down,

At ‘puddles’ that emulate mighty hurdles,

It’s all your mind’s play.

Only courage and relentless dedication

Will usher you to go on.

To go on forever,

To go on……
