A Bit More!


Need a bit more courage not to shed tears,
Seek a bit more patience not to be in anger,
Travel a bit more distance to find the love you require,
Knock a bit more passionately for that person to hear.

Though we are the fast runners and thinkers on the earth,
We alight before the destination, as we are in haste,
A bit more tolerance could have saved many hearts and lives,
A bit more understanding could have molded us to be in peace.

    But the things are laid up for a show and it is now very late for most of us to set things right. A piece with an appealing charm. (Report) Reply

    A look back into times past. we see only fools rush in
    But looking into the future time waits for no man
    and opportunities gained are never opportunities lost (Report) Reply
