The Life That I Want It To Be! - Poem by Subbaraman N V

I can mould the life that I want it to be
With all that will and wit that abides in me
Summer and winter a part of our life
Day and night a part of our file
Summer into winter and day into night
Sure I can change with all my might
Mourn - I am lost, raise - I will last
Strength to strength I go very fast!
Cry - I am gone, Smile - I am born
Again to reach my goal like a capricorn!
Rise and fall may be a part of an empire
Never I allow that to inspire
Rise ever and fall never
Has been my goal right for ever!
Will to learn, wit to act
Grit to gear, swift to do
God to help, elders to guide
Mind to control, physique to obey
Luck to favour, ethics to practise
Sure help me mould the life that I want it to be!
