Best


Agile body
An agile mind
Is what
Rigours
Of life demand.

Pondered
Slept
Wept
Crept
For rejuvination
Took rest
And he swept
Me, me
Back.

Me thought
Iwas the best.
Best when
Put to test
Proved
Was not
The best
No end to this test
No end for the best

    The craving for being the best is there in everyone; but unfortunately, when put to test, we realize that we are not the best and the strivng continues. Such an attempt will definitely im prove the quality of our life! Good theme and great presentation! (Report) Reply

    It is the toughest question in the world. Those who are considered as the best in one field, may not be good at other fields, particularly in life..Nice poem! (Report) Reply

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
