Poetic-Verses

There is no defeat

             By
     P.R.Ramchander
(adapted from a Hindi poem by Anon)

If the boat is ever afraid of the waves,
It can never, ever cross the sea,
Only to those who try very hard,
There is never, ever a defeat.

When tiny little ants carry the grain and climb,
On the steep-soft walls, they fall down hundreds of times,
But their mind filled fully with hope,
Fills up their nerves fully with courage.
Falling after climbing and climbing after falling,
Does never make them stop from climbing,
For they know that hard work never goes waste,
Only to those who try very hard,
There is never, ever a defeat.

The scuba divers sink and rise,
In the sea and return oft empty handed,
For it is very rare to get a pearl in the deep sea,
But they sink and rise again and again,
For they know that sometimes their hands will not be empty.
Accept the fact that every failure is a challenge,
Take courage from defeat and try again,
Till you are crowned with success.
Banish sleep from your eyes at night,
And do not desert and run away from this land of defeat.
For without doing hard work, no success comes,
Only to those who try very hard,
There is never, ever a defeat.
