Can You Expect


Not that being poor
you could not achieve
your goal, if so
Ambedkar, Lincoln and Obama
could not scale the height of success.

My child!
Poverty is not the hurdle
along the way of achievement
instead, lack of our will to win
is the mother of our misfortune.

Success or failure
is nothing but an outcome
of our labor or laziness.

And my child!
Can you expect sweet grapes
from the climber of bitter gourd?
