13th December - My Birth day

On this day, I came to this world
I cried for, where I came and with
What destiny of my life
What my mother would have thought
About her newly born baby, she might
have kissed my head with so many wishes.

My all well wishers and family members
might have enjoyed
But none had imagined about
the future struggle of my life.

My Dad had said, forehead of his son
is high so as to sky, he will blossom
and fragrance of his son will
enchant all the passers –by.

Five decades of my life is passed
still the achievement of my life
appears to be zero by zero.

Yet hopeful for my life with gross achievement
as the resonance of all hope and belief
of my parents and all well wishers
are still ALIVE.

    You have expressed nice thoughts on your birthday. You have remembered your parents, and family members. You have looked back at the last five decades of your life and felt reassured:
    'Yet hopeful for my life with gross achievement
    as the resonance of all hope and belief
    of my parents and all well wishers
    are still ALIVE.' - Very well done! (Report) Reply

    Hopes and beliefs of well-wishers, and Dad's expectations can never be wrong...the first cry of a baby proclaims his arrival and substantial existence in the world, not any sadness... Happy Birthday! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Look at this way: You went through many many tribulation in your life, however you should be happy, because you became better, wiser and stronger. Anyway, you will have problems, until you get to the point, that you cannot take anymore, that will be the time you will calm down, turn away from the problems, still do your best to solve them, but the more you turn away and do not let it bother you, your life will became better and better. It did for me. Now I am living in the 23rd Psalm. (Report) Reply
