Know It Well


Not knowing fully well what we are doing
Not realizing what ultimately we may be inviting
Nothing comes without doing hard work
No good end is possible without noble start

Timely or untimely success my blind
That may force you to become arrogant and unkind
Yet remember no short cut is allowed
Tragic and pathetic end if unmindfully followed

Beware always, nothing come before time
You may have little gain sometimes
It has far reaching consequences
You can’t draw wrong inferences

You may pick favorable quotes and act
Seek refuge and solace under false pretext and react
That won’t cut much ice for practical purpose
You know it gracefully that almighty may dispose

At no stage some hasty action is required
Get into right action before you are tired
Slow and steady may find the fruits of labor
Wealth earned with hard work may only land at harbor

You can expect only grace and blessings
Nothing should go on your part as missing
What you get back in any form is simple reward!
Nothing comes in life with only luck as award

Have patience, wait for opportunity and strike
Carve out the path saw the seeds when dark clouds are in sky
You may then be confident of overcoming any stress
The real gain and happiness will be seen on face

Have short cut only when there is no other go
Find no alternative and no option to forgo
Avail whatever means open and easily sought
This may make it little favorable without being caught

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
