Treasure Island

Access To Success

To attain a successful life-cum-career
You must be a non-stop warrior
Heart must be a confidence-career
To remove each hindering barrier

To achieve success you must have ardor
You must also persevere harder
Thoughts must be arranged in order
As they are rungs to the success-ladder

In a day Rome was not built
Let not initial failure give guilt
In time-river, experience is the silt
In future, life-boat will not tilt

Let not thoughts make somersault
As tears will flow from eye-vault
Human life without any fault
Is like a sea without salt

Life is a precious jewel
To end, one day, you must sell
Worry makes life a hell
To that hell say farewell

Through a carefully planned strategy
Everyone must become a prodigy
Worry is a soul-killing allergy
It will sap your whole energy

Whenever defeats are met
Do not fume and sadly fret
Success is in efforts I bet
Hard-work is the best outlet

Walk always on the right path
Live unto the last only for truth
Improper victory incurs God's wrath
Let 'Hard-work' be your only oath

Victory must dry tears, not produce
Power of thinking, do not abuse
World's burden every act must reduce
In a noble heart lives God, I deduce

Pray to the mighty Almighty
Have with peace a treaty
Let not heart feel weighty
As stars in the sky are plenty.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
