Be Willing To Go That Extra Mile - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

Look forward to a brighter day
Look forward with happier ways
Look forward with a hope and a smile
And be wiling to go that extra mile

And remember my dear in this life
Many things that occur and survive
Are not exactly what we wish
In this world surrounded with God's bliss

It's surely sometimes hard to believe
And you don't think you can ever achieve
But with a little courage and hope
You can surely reach the door of cope

Where you can enter and have the best
And know that there you can rest
And look forward with a hope and smile
And be willing to go that extra mile.

    This poem reminds me Emily Bronte poem “ Lines” in which she encourages the despised and mournful traveler and tells him the secret to cover the journey in these words:
    If you still despair control,
    Hush its whispers in your breast,
    You shall reach the final goal,
    You shall win the land of rest.

    The poem teaches the lesson of optimism, life is a journey and there are the hardships which call forth courage to confront them. It is a fact that we cover the journey step by step though it is a thousand mile long. Mission can’t be achieved in a short span of time; they claim a life long endeavor.
