I Refuse To Surrender - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I refuse to surrender and prefer to lie low
As I am very much made of hard core and won’t allow
Whatever may be consequences that may follow?
I shall look ahead and certainly would like to grow

I am no coward so as to die thousands death daily
My statement may not be liked and look even funny
Yet it is reality and we live with constant fears
With little of difficulties loose hope and shed tears

It is Wiseman’s thinking that never oppose wind
Divert the route and immediately try to find
Easy way to sail through stormy ocean
And even halt the journey if weather is not clean

There may be danger on each and every step we put forward
But that should not discourage us from looking backward
We must gain from the clues left behind and positively think
The ship must be saved before runs aground and sink

To oppose powerful current is considered as foolish
It should not be your weakness to make it fast finish
The result can be attained later on when situation is favorable
As you must strike hard at the roots when find fully capable

It is not ideological thinking or for that matter arrogance
One must strive hard to gain foothold with even slight chance
That may grant you enough of opportunity to find an escape
It will become lot more easier and become clear before you fall to traps

Healthy mind speaks of good health with powerful thoughts
Such a tendency is never learnt or easily taught
Man may find it with many ups and down in the life journey
Rest all is left to the mercy of god and blessings from the almighty

Let us know the handicaps that may create hurdles on the way
Whatever sources we may have or powerful position to stay?
We can’t fight ill luck or unfavorable situation
We must keep on making inroads with evaluation
