Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

Wish me Luck!


Each of us is put to test
everyday and every time.
Each question appear in a flash of time
But each answer is unique in its own way.
You can cut, copy and paste also.

The more you peep in others paper
the more frustrated you will be
As you will feel others answer is so simple
that you can fix in no time.
But others may also feel the same for you.

Once you press submit button
you cannot click it back.
The answer is like an arrow
when released from a bow
it is sure to hit the target where you choose to.
You cannot erase the answer
but you can rectify it by logical action.

Every one have to pass through the test.
The answer should be yours
Else some one else will take control of your answer.

It's like riding a horse.
Riding is smooth as long as
you take control of the horse.
But once you loose the control then
The horse will take control of your life too.
It will take you where it want to go and
If you resist then horse will make you fall too.

Then all you can say is
'My life in horse hands'

All I can tell is
BEST OF LUCK for the ride of life
and WISH ME LUCK too.

    Geetha - thank for presenting such a such a penning with so many ifs and buts but ultimately you came out with the gist that this path of life is uncertain and I wish you all good luck (Report) Reply

    Answer depends upon the question. Lovely questions get lovely answers. But when a foolish question is replied in a lovely manner the student under a test becomes superior to the paper setter. (Report) Reply

    fine analogy geetha: Riding is smooth as long as
    you take control of the horse.
    But once you loose the control then
    The horse will take control of your life too.

    Life can have it's ups and downs, but if we grasp the ride with both hands

    Excellent. Ride of life is like riding a horse. When you lose control, the horse takes it. Beautiful idea and images.
