Sonnet: True Success Is God-Destined - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Some think they can achieve all things by sheer
Hard-work, intelligence and on their own;
Some think they can do things while they drink beer,
Through slaves and cell-phones, working in a town!

Some think that back-door entry is the best!
They use their clout and influence and bribe;
Some achieve things by turning into pest,
And some others are sheer will-powered tribes.

Some pray to God but never labor hard;
Some labor hard but never pray to God;
The one who mixes both gets his reward;
The lucky/ plucky man cannot be Lord!

True success comes when man does as God says,
And such a man gets surely better days!
