Don'T Run Away - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

You believe in self whether right or wrong
Stay firmly and say you are among
Not to run away from the scene and face
As life is nothing but survival race

Not a day passes off without any challenge
It puts you on guard and compels you to manage
It is made clear either you bear the brunt
Or go down in circus after showing the stunts

It is no less dangerous than animal show
They live amidst fear and gradually grow
Daily new things are coming up for public consumption
You can’t put up inferior show on the basis of assumption

You are sole judge to reach any conclusion
You can have clear criteria for its inclusion
You may then know in which way it may turn
It may not cause you tension or any other concern

Sometimes you are debarred from acting alone
Even though struggle is to waged as lone
You have so many compulsions to counter the move
As it may take enough of your energy to prove

Not all may reach safely to the shore
It requires foresight and strength to explore
When you reach near to your destiny
You may be garlanded by so many
