Be A Real Diamond - Poem by Bireswar Halder
Dear mind, don't go haywire at the slightest scar
Move along the noble path you took long ago
The light and contentment you reap is your reward
All else are no match for the lofty mission you embraced.
Dear mind, don't be deterred by the mistakes you make
Mistakes make us all more serious and perfect
Don't blame others, the fault-finders who blot your name
Let them selfishly celebrate their vile victory, ignore them.
Dear mind, don't bewail the potshots they throw at your honour
Or the false allegations and stigma they slap on you
Envious people will pierce your heart with poisonous arrows
Have patience and be steady because it’s temporary.
Dear mind, don't be flustered by unforeseen afflictions
They don't come in life to destroy you, dear
But to help you realize your hidden potential
And to prove your genius, as you’re a real diamond.
Dear mind, don't get nervous of their frequent torments
You are to proceed to your goal inspite of obstacles
The wicked will tempt you to be dishonest
But be careful and firm, you will definitely succeed.
Dear mind, don't get scared because of dark days
The sunlight will come again through the scouring clouds
Today's enemies will grace you with accolades
Be sure, you will overcome all tribulations one day.
