Bronze Star - 5,817 Points (2/2/1981 / kottayam)


A ladder that intend to climb
It was inclining to recognition
First pace that strive to survive
Thirst that loll famine aside
On the midway a thrust of a sudden
Hierarchy that acquire the prominence
Ears that eager to heed the words
Followers that praise the idol
Worship that recite his gain
After awhile there fervent a group to drop
Grapevine bent by the opponents
Loop that locus to its fall
Descent that hymn inside
Fear that fold and buff to protect
All the way that expands the legacy
Crated and folktale the fame
It fetches all pessimistic way
Sometimes an optimistic way
Yet need means to stardom
The greatest fear, the fall
Hypocrisy to accept the low side
Fear of loss, the greatest fear
Plea to higher steps
Never wish a slump from the crest
Apprehension, as its descent of stardom….

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
