Sportsman's Spirit! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
Life is like a football ground
Few hours before
A pin drop silence played
On the ground.
Couple of hours before games
The playground was overcrowded with spectators.
Pin drop silence was thrown out like a ball.
The two teams fought
Like tiger and bull
Surrounded by people
Cheering each team
Ball kept on passing from one to another
Each time crowd shouting out, cheering...
Half the crowd happy
And danced in the wind
Other half crowd oops...
Just bend down to sit.
One is victorious
The ground is
Left to zero, with no sounds, just empty.
It's like the tide, which is coming and hitting seashore and retreating back.
It's like the happiness coming for a moment and going away.
Winning team left with happiness
While the other with unhappiness.
Take everything like sportsman spirit
While winning enjoys the happiness.
While loosing forget it.
All cannot win all the times.
Some have to lose them too.
Keep your hand on your Heart and say
'Better Luck next time'
