Self-appraisal: A Positive Rehearsal


Through a careful self-analysis
One can easily come out of crisis
Strong mind one gradually inherits
After evaluating merits and demerits

Success gets unduly delayed
It means efforts are not conveyed
Let one be unbelievably patient
And not become a mental patient

Uncontrollability comes and ridicules
When life is crammed with schedules
Let confidence be at one’s disposal
And let one’s courage be colossal

One must steadfastly resolve
That any problem one can solve
Great acts one can never render
If one’s thoughts aimlessly wander

Let mind firmly quit
Bad habits and inhibit
The occurrence of sad events
By making thoughts servants

Good thoughts make life peaceful
Good hearts make life meaningful
A true and strong never changes
But meets confidently challenges

God is very very kind
Says firmly one who is blind
Inspite of that dark curtain
About this he is totally certain

Will it be really fruitful
To be worrying and regretful?
Yes, but not in life always
We must find out possible ways

In prayer one must rinse
One’s soul to wash of sins
Prayers create a calm mentality
Helping bliss enjoy immortality

Until death one’s will-power must exist
And without relaxation one must persist
In goals and ambitions’ implementation
Guts and sweats must do the augmentation.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
