Set Foothold - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Sun had to cut sorry figure
Darkness was threatening to take over
The day’s hard work was coming to halt
Oh! There lies some visible fault

Under the lamp, there is always darkness
The face may have brightness
Yet it has lot more to smile
The fact remains same meanwhile

The enemies of peace wait for chance
One weak point is enough for them to strike at once
The victory may stand for short
But it has proved good start

Not one man can manage show
The power must be shown with terrific blow
The enemy should not be given chance to recover
The chances should be finished once for all and ever

Trust not even close friend
When it comes to blow dead end
It ahs to be done with guarded secret
Nothing should be left to luck or fate

Once enemy has set foothold
It may try to find permanent hold
The loopholes must be plucked
At opportune time it must be struck
