Mastery Of An Art - Poem by Daya Nandan

Mastery of an art is not something men are born with,
Neither is the perfection of an art simply a tall myth,
It takes years of dedication and a passion so strong,
And the persistence to correct every mistake so wrong,

But at the end of it all, the end result will show it's worth,
Beauty born of skill and devotion shall lay ground upon earth,
The notion that nothing can be perfect is nothing more than bullshit,
For the key to perfection is nothing more than an ability to commit,

Times will get hard, no matter where you start or where you stand,
But that doesn't mean you can't climb the walls with each determined hand,
There will be obstacles and struggles that will try to hold you down,
But let not those barriers stop you from reaching the jeweled crown,

Some will try to stop you with everything they have to make you surrender,
Do not let them stop you in your tracks, run and fight against each pretender,
Keep fighting, and remain optimistic no matter what stands in your way,
Keep moving forward towards mastery be it night or day,

You will always have a time that tries your will and your resolve,
But as the problems get harder, you too must constantly evolve,
Until a point when you have seen it all and no obstacle can stop you,
That will be the point when you have reached a level of mastery so true,

The quest of mastery is a journey where you must constantly improve,
And once there, you must not stay stagnant, always be on the move,
When it's all over, you'll still be standing with an appreciation of your quest,
How you fought through the rest in order to be the best.
