Bronze Star - 6,738 Points (Kerala Palakkad)

Sour were those grapes!


Target seems to upset me
Double is my goal to be made.
The more I run
The target is running double ahead of me
I just stood watching at it
Breathing heavily on the way
Just thinking and wondering
What I should do
Can't find a way..
There is no short cut
Only long cut
But time left is limited.

It seems those grapes are sour to touch,
And keep my heart cooling.

Any way
Make a final run and see
If I reach, I can tell
Grapes were wonderful..
Else
I can tell,
I just gave up,
As I felt from far,
Those weren't better for me.

Still I can laugh at myself
And tell
I was just near my goal.
What's harm in it
If my hands couldn't reach it
As they were too far and never meant for me...

    Geetha, the way you accept victory and defeat is just enviable! You don; t care even if you fail to reach the target! What harm is there in trying! This should be our attitude to life! (Report) Reply

    Goals are best achieved
    when we ignore, do not heed
    They then seem jealous
    or maybe callous
    If we go on without their phallus (Report) Reply
