Rookie (1989 / khi)

****Sometimes we must****


sometimes we must
get hurt in order
to grow,

we must
fail in order
to know that.

sometimes
our visions
clear only after
our eyes
are washed
away with tears...

    The triumph of happiness is from our pains. From our failures we learned the right things in life, we become stronger to face life's adversaries taking it more as a challenge, and when we come and get over with it, the essence of happiness is being treasured and much appreciated its value..........Thanks!

We chaired you through the market-place;

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
