No castle in air


Never try to build castle in air
As it may not look fair
Your feet will not be placed firmly on ground
The wish for great empire will never be found

It is said “slow and steady wins the race”
There may be set back in some of the stray cases
Ultimately your hard work pays in the long run
For retaining the peace you need not use the gun

When you have reached top
Try to retain position and never stop
But at the same time show no kind of disrespect
As fame and fortune tends to show and act

Step by step you try to cross over
Any hurdle that is causing fear
Wearing you apart and discouraging quest
Try to be firm and perform the best

As good beginner you may learn
The tactics with key to turn
From failure to success
As you may have full access

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

of the slow autumn at my window,
