Keep Upright - A Motivational Poem - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

A traveler while wandering across
Saw a man sitting on the path
Looking dejected and deep in thoughts
Saw when traveler approaching he asked
What do you want just go get lost
I am surrounded with many worries
Look I want to solve all them in hurry
Don't add any more to my miseries?
Traveler with empathy and little smile
Said dear friend I am sent to join your fight
Tell me one by one what is not right
The man said, do you know what all I lost?
My wife suffered heart attack and she died,
Lionesses took away my son from my sight,
All my cattle died with contagious diseases,
Flood flushed my only home and
Finally I am left alone…..
Traveler asked, tell me your name,
May be you are the person whom I am looking here and there..
He said my name is "Raider - the woodcutter"
Traveler said Ah my search is over,
You are called by top timber merchant to his tower,
Life is waiting for you to come and restart,
Who knows you might get all what you did not thought
Opportunities are plenty for those who fight
Never lose your faith in life, just keep yourself upright.

    Very inspirational write! Though much is lost, still it is not time to lose all hopes. From the debris of shattered dreams, a new life can resurrect! So never leave hope........! Cling on to life....... Who knows if some one will come as a saviour at a point when all hopes are lost! It is sad to read the stories of increasing suicide when beset with the problems of life!

    Though, the poem progresses on a serious note in poignant mood but turns optimistic towards the end with a profound message. Excellent work. Thank you, Asim ji.
