Try Try Try Again - Poem by Shankaran Kutty

I remember as a child I would sit and cry
When math I couldn’t crack however much did I try
When Newton’s laws would stare from the Physics book
I was too scared to even take a look
And when I thought all my efforts were in vain
My dad would come and say “Try, try, try again”

A cycle, the first time I tried to ride
My fear of falling I tried to hide
My first class to learn to drive a car
I thought this will never go too far
I hear a voice scream inside my brain
“You can, so try, try, try again”

Now I have grown so big and tall
Have gone through many a failure and fall
But my daughters two when they come to me
With tears in their eyes say, it is just not gonna be
I immediately sense their fear and pain
But I tell them “Dear, try, try, try again”
