Do Your Very Best


In everything
At every time
At everywhere
Just do your very best.
The very best you can.

This means going that extra mile
Putting in exciting efforts with a smile
Tackling all tasks as if, at stake, is one's life
Confronting all chores with compelling commitment
That is doing the very best you can.

Doing your best is a duty
To your self it is a calling
To your family that is a passion
But more importantly,
To God that is an obligation
His ways and deeds are perfect
And He demands, of you, nothing less

Doing your best
Satisfies your conscience
Frees you from condemnation
Enables you to walk shoulder high
Gives you pride and confidence
For you have stanchly served
You have given your best

Doing your best
May not always result in success
But one thing is crystal clear
Failure-marginally of miserably,
Doing your best
Makes you a vindicated victim
Qualifying you to be acclaimed
As gracious and gallant in defeat

So in all things
Leave your footprint on the sand of time
By doing your very best.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
