ENDLESS WOES


Endless woes seems his fate
Heart of hearts we do hate!
No more the woes he can bear
How to avoid is one's care!
Woes indeed are his foes
One must bring under toes!
Endless woes or gutless mind
What causes the woes of such kind?
Face the woes with stubborn heart
Yielding not is surely an art!
Good or bad one does on earth
Joy or woe visit him with mirth
As one is destined to have!
Grieve not over woes nor glee on joy!
Take the life of woes and joys
With equanimity and poise!

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
