- What Matters
Today I learnt a lesson,
Wondrous to behold.
God but has to test you
That is what it told.
Said: If at first you fall short;
Do not, the mission ever abort.
Maybe you're afraid that you would fail,
Do not worry, you'll prevail.
If only you shake hands with perseverance
At every pathway you'll get clearance.
And don't fall prey to despair,
After all life ain't always fair...
I read:"A man knowing ultimate sorrow,
Is the one to truly feel ultimate bliss."
I close mine eyes, smile and think:
"One hundred percent true 'tis!"
For now I see that all it takes,
A little courage and the wall breaks.
The wall that you from your goal separates,
’Tis truth that men make their own fates.
If you can't decide where to start
Don't fret, go and listen to your heart.
You can trust it, No fear that it misguides.
For you know that's the place where God resides.
If you face some unfairness,
Come hear it from me
He's likely got much better in store,
And will reward you handsomely!
I've passed through passageways unlit,
And learned you should strive bit by bit.
Just be steady and never give in;
And the aftermath will make you grin.
Finally getting to the cliff top I see,
Many more cliffs and mounts ahead of me.
