Though they see not
These dedicated efforts.
Though they hear not
Silence does matter.
Though they feel not
Warm heart beats
And their youthful rhythm.
Hold on O heart
A little longer
And strive on.
Seek each moment
And hold it tight
Without regrets or any fright
Protest when justice
Isn’t clear to sight
Endure all evil of the moment and persevere
With prudence, delight and solemn prayer
Believe in self and lift that load of despair
Pray and strike on and on.
Wait for none, no one will come
No right time is waiting its turn
You and that time is right here
Look into the eyes of life so dear
Grab destiny by its face and pull it near
Let that distant gaze get clear
The ship of life
From grief and pain
Into the waters of ocean of eternal tranquillity
Struggle your way on.
Every twist, every spin or a knock
Tests my strength matures my thoughts
I emerge a better and
A happier being.
It’s my belief
O what a convincing thought!
I can feel my spirits rise and soar
Towards the heaven it flies to float
I will conquer myself, my circumstances, yet again
Let my mind burn
With wisdom’s unquenchable flame
Dive deep into the untapped rich spiritual reserves
These inner final frontiers of my life
Will fuel my energy, passion and desire
To strive on and on and on.
