A poem from the book: ‘Refractions from the Prism of God.’
LIFE BECOMES EASY WHEN CHALLENGE BECOMES A PASSION
Life is a challenge without passion,
Life is tough till ambition becomes a passion,
Everything is distant till goals become a passion,
And life remains tough till the will-to-achieve becomes a passion.
For in the heaps of life challenges are galore,
And I am just me but aspirations are truckloads,
Time is zipping where challenges are pulling,
And in all of this only passions are balancing.
Life is all about perseverance to perfection,
For mediocrity is lamentation,
But perseverance is boring,
Without the spice of passion.
For in the anvil of a lifetime,
Horizons are wide,
Subsist, exist or excel,
And all is in your aspirational spell.
For average is average,
Success is success,
Achievement is achievement,
But excellence is excellence.
But there is no excellence without passion,
And no challenge with passion,
For life is only a matter of habit,
Where in every sphere of life,
Passions overtake challenges.
