Great Efforts - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Great efforts

No rewards
No awards but set backs

No let up in preparation
Strong enthusiasm with indication
"Come what may" push hard with resolution

Port is sighted
All sailors are delighted
Birds hover over head
May be far away some open bodies of dead

Destiny not far away
Cautious move with all alerts on the way
Eyes on high seas to tackle the danger
Arms in hand with readiness of trigger
Black natives are seen similar to those niggers

Shore is in sight
"Hurrah, Hurrah" sailors shout
New land is found to make the mother land
Natives to be approached and made friends
Anchor the ship with arms down
Make our wish loudly known

    As with all poetry it is open to 'personal interpretation' based on our own emotional existence at the time of reading. For me, I see a struggle within the work place, society at large, with no real gratification. That you have moved on to a new location in hope that you will receive your dues (whatever they may be) . Regardless of where you were coming from I have taken what I needed and for that I thank you for this submission.
