Sonnet: The Best Takes Time - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

All things take time to reach maturity;
A fruit must grow in size ‘fore it ripens;
A work should keep some kind of purity;
It takes some years before a Bard well pens.

Records are broken not in simple ways;
A second off the track-record is great;
All achievements take place by sweat and days;
If things go wrong, then people call it fate.

A world’s wonder takes years and men to build;
An invention needs effort without end;
Discoveries by pluck is but God-willed;
The ways to mighty peaks but narrow wend.

Great things in life are achieved by hard work;
The little set-backs should not one’s mind irk.
