a poem by Nishtha Mishra

My ambition,
in life is to stand out,
from the huge tides of water
that surround me.
I will do something,
by which people will know me,
for my character,
my free will,
my courage,
my self esteem-
by which I will reach the shores,
and then climb the steep hill.

I will contribute to something
bigger than myself.
only then will I live many lives,
for then I will do something for someone else,
putting myself ahead,
on the road of life.
