Waiting For A Bull’s Eye - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

I once threw a stone in life’s dark,
Which hit the bull though not the eye,
Aimed well I’d not, nor made a mark,
Wanted no bull’s eye nor near nigh.

And I was thinking on the how
And why of action that was throw,
Doing what need be done, and now,
For there’s no merit in morrow.

Had I awaited morning’s light,
Waited for bull to be in sight,
Worried if my aim would be right,
Would the bull have waited all night?

And then I saw the golden rule:
More oft than bull’s eye ‘tis the bull!
__________________________________________
We needless wait in life for inexistent
perfection and loose valuable time
achieving little for the wait. Take
our justice system, take policy decisions
at the helm. A less than perfect thing
today is far better than a little more
perfect one after inordinate delay.
