Slow And Sure. Poem by Nabakishore Dash

Slow And Sure.

Rating: 4.8


Slow moving water can easily
erode hard rocks,
a most difficult task.
Slowly emerging words from one's lip build up sweet talk.

Slow and steady wins the race.
The slow moving tortoise reached
the destination,
but the swift braggart hare
had a sad face.

Slow gait and sweet talk
of a newly wed lady
steal every body's heart.
Help building a sweet home
devoid of any strife,
never possible by a tongue tart.


Slow motion can take you easily
to the end of a long road.
A coarse bed is best
when stitched slowly
as there are less nodes.
Slow trekking can help you
winning in mountaineering.
Similarly slow acquisition
of knowledge and wealth
are long-lasting and benefiting.
Slow and steady minds can
win laurels in this world.
Hasty and unsteady minds
are sure to suffer, go wild.
