Treasure Island

hasmukh amathalal

(17/05/1947 / Vadali, Dist: - sabarkantha, Gujarat, India)

I shall not give up

Never go for perfection
But watch own action
That shall lead to near goal
Then wait for beautiful call

Do not search for impossible
As everybody faces struggle
How best you try to attain?
And that shall always remain

See in him a best effort
That shall anchor ship at port
We call it perfect attempt
With action so prompt

I shall take chance
At once
To be in line with perfection
For whatever is needed for action

I shall not give up
And fall to trap
As it shall cause my downfall
But I shall dash to break the wall

    Mixed thoughts? Elliott Morreau5 hours ago Contradictory's in line 5 and 15? Mixed emotions or thoughts? Maybe expand or reorder? Ie: abrupt ending, break the wall What is the wall? What does it represent? Is it the wall keeping you from success? Or is it the wall keeping you from failure? Since once you break the wall it will cause your downfall? The ending is little confusing. But other then that i liked it :) Comment 1 Comment+1

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
