a poem by Tina Aranha

When I look around
Whole lot of pain
Troubles surround
Efforts in vain

My path is filled with hurdles
Constant struggle, I go thru
Opportunity comes like thread thru the eye of a needle
Satisfaction comes to very few

Yet there is a passion in me
A burning spark
Lots of things I want to see
Ignore when people bark.

I know this is possible
The right thing to do
I am strong and able
and determined too.

I’ll take life front on
Before it is gone.
