Greatness Calling!!

image

Greatness stands alone in the streets
Calling out names before unheard
Bestowing crowns on those that dare
To walk towards its wide open arms

Before it sits a great abyss
A dark and seemingly endless pit
This pit swallows the unguided ones
Who stumble forward without counting the cost

Responding to Greatness takes great guts
Persevering against all odds
True and lasting greatness honours hard graft
It stands to salute only those who show it respect
Disregarding creed, race or age

Respect for Greatness can be seen
In the one that remains resolute in spite of spite
The one that clogs his ears and refuses to hide
And can unhear the resounding sound of fear
Who being afraid still march forward

They wear the shame of ridicule very well
Remaining undaunted by pointing fingers
To them, golden hands are not proffered
The lack of help on every side
Though keenly felt in this lonely pursuit
Does not deter them from Greatness’ call

Ahead they forge with no apology
The fire in their eyes undimmed by life
Greatness has called out their name just once
But once is enough to make convictions strong
They will take their place, no matter what the cost

Have you sometimes wondered what use it is to keep trying and giving your best effort to a cause that does not seem to be yielding any results? Energy can never be exerted without effect although we often have to wait for a while to see the compound effect of all the numerous efforts we have exerted over time. The bird’s eye view is awesome although you can’t see it. As long as the direction you are headed in is right, you will arrive at the top. I am yet to see any flight of steps that do not lead up. Even winding steps go up even if they don’t look that way. The turns and twists of life will not deny you your ascension. Just keep climbing.

Revving In The Slow Lane

It’s hard to keep revving your engine

You hear it’s loud cranking sounds

It seems so ready to go

To speed off into the sunset

Of happily ever afters

Can’t wait to be on the road

This unmoving constant revving

Looses its thrill sooner than later

It’s becomes a noisy pollutant

With no sweet release following

 

 

Life often gives revving opportunities

The promise that you are about to speed off

Into the fast lane of your dreams

And live happily ever after

But the signal can seem delayed

You’re ready to go but there’s limitations

And you find that all you do

Is just keep the engine revved

All pumped up but never moving

No speed to get the thrill heightened

Too many loose ends still untied.

Don’t turn the engine off

Don’t waste the revving momentum

If you can’t speed off now

At least start moving slowly forward

Forward in life’s slow lane

There are no restrictions there

Just annoying traffc jams

Just one in the crowd of starters

Waiting their turn to speed off

 

 

An engine kept alive

Will be even more ready when time comes

To go at higher speeds

Up the highways of life

To have your very own part

In the stuff dreams are made off.
