That’s Life

a poem by

Govindraj

One day an ant was walking down a lane,
When he came across a nice piece of grain,
Lifting it on such a hot day would be such a strain,
It was worth a try as there was nothing to lose and lot to gain,

“GO HOME! IT’S TOO HARD” all the onlookers would goad,
But he strained and he groaned to lift up his load,
he used all the strength his tiny body could afford,
All their discouragements he just ignored.

A lot of time this arduous job did take,
Every muscle in his body began to ache,
But our friend, his find was not ready to forsake,
With all his might he pushed and the grain began to shake.

He lifted the grain and carried it with pride,
And said with a grin big and wide,
“PEOPLE WILL SNEER, PEOPLE WILL CHIDE,
BUT GREAT FEATS CAN BE ACHIEVED ONLY IF TRIED”.
