Pillar Of Strength - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

Lightning
Furious wind
Thunder
And whirlwind
Will all come in your life...
But
Don't let you tremble...
Be strong and determined
And be the pillar of strength

And live the life you dream
And turn your fears into faith
And then you'll see
When you can't stop the waves
You can at least
Let yourself
Learn to surf
To survive....

And don't let cold and bitter wind
To stop your smooth flow
From meeting an exciting adventure ahead
Just be the pillar of strength
And shed all your insecurities
And limitations
Of life.......
