Success: A Constant Battle

a poem by Sudarshan Madhav Karhale

Shake off your fears,
wipe off your tears,
light the torches
of confidence and courage;
beasts of challenges wait ahead in the night of life–
be prepared to engage.

Grab your spears,
raise your shields
of will power and determination–
there is no halt for you;
as soon as a wave of troubles clears,
another one immediately appears.

Sharpen your daggers,
polish your swords
of focus and dedication;
claws of failures might bruise you–
have the strength of patience and hope to bear with them;
there is no such other medication.
