Workaholic With Passion! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

I am not praising you,
With any unwanted words.
Whatever I come across,
I just write in few words.
My pen cannot remain idle,
It just feel like writing down few verses, which I cannot tell on ones face directly.

He is a man with a passion for his work, so dedicated to his work.
With flattery words one cannot win him ever.
Send him birthday wishes, he will never love.
But with what dedication you do the work, only pleases him ever.
There cannot be any explanations for the excuses if any.
Just in plain words speak the truth.
His eyes are too sharp to judge you perfectly.
His memory is too sharp and
Blessed with great sense of humor.

Shaking hands meeting eyes to eyes,
His eyes speak of boldness.
Blended with beautiful qualities of,
Self Disciplined and inner strength.
He can sail through any storms,
which he had proved many times.
His strictness may not be liked,
as a man of disciplines.

He is a man full of life and charms.
A man, who has the courage to do the right thing.
But I will never tell,
Who you are.
I love to praise the qualities,
Whatever my eyes see,
What ever I hear,
For I know the person.
It's the plain truth I am writing,
Regarding him in my verse.
He may not read my verses,
so boldly I can write regarding him.
If someone asks who is he,
For, I will never tell.
For it can be you
or anyone who comes with
these qualities ever.

I have never seen a man, just took few hours of leave for his surgery.
Surprise it was that he directly he went to office the moment he was discharged.
So dedicated to work.
All I can tell is,
He is a rare person with so many qualities I have ever met.
Yes, I do respect him and his qualities, which he owns.
He is a unique man of rare with lots of achievements.
God Bless Him with best of health and happiness always!

Thank You!

    This was a great character sketch! I thought I would dislike a workaholic but you showed the other aspects of his personality so that stanza by stanza I grew to see him as more than a singular aspect. The man is stern but with himself as well as others- - and he has a softening from his warm sense of humor. He has the courage to do the right thing, and he does not suck up nor appreciate those who suck up. He is dedicated to doing his job right and doesn't spare himself in pursuit of doing well. I ended this poem respecting this rounded out portrait of a workaholic- - exceedingly well done, Geetha! 10+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ (Report) Reply

    There are such venerable personalities in our midst! They deserve to be appreciated when such rare specimens easily dwindle in number these days! If we praise a person on the face, it might sound flattery and leave him embarrassed! But if such encomium is given indirectly, it will help many to emulate the exemplary qualities he has! As usual, a great write Geetha! (Report) Reply

    Dear Geetha. Your pen and your heart share the most incredible emotions. (Report) Reply

    A poem with true splendour of telling a fine fact. Workaholics alone contribute to the otherwise passive world around us. The surprising thing is we see a few around us to write on, but you alone thought of writing such a poem, Geetha. A fine write from you.
    Sorry for being away from the PH for a couple of months... Shall be reading further.

    I would be very glad to meet this person in person! But since he is hiding within the veils of your poem, I wish all of us would imbibe at least some of his qualities. I am glad to be introduced to his great qualities. A superb poem on a superman! (Report) Reply
