A Rainy Day At Last

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing.  That’s why we recommend it daily.

Zig Ziglar
It was five o'clock in the morning
When the cock gave a warning
That the scorching sun - this day will not be having fun.

The night, 
Was still a dark carpet covering the farmhouse-
Wherein slept the farmer and his wife 
Who prayed profusely to the heavens
For the skies to make like a shower
And pour water on the dying flowers in the field.-

When a flash of lightning lit the sky
So that the sad clouds up high
Began to unleash their sorrows in tears
Wet enough to quench the pain of plains
That haven't drunk water in years.

Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.

Og Mandino


My pain

And my bane.

Keeps me sane

When i walk the lane

Of crazy,

Whilst journeying

Into the realms of creativity

And imagination.

To a Lady whose Heart is not Beautiful

Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.

Henry Ford

To you, my lovely long-legged lady.

Who makes all men, to you want to come near;

For your eyes are green and your hair’s sandy.

Making many a dandy shed a tear,

Because they want to talk to you, but fear

To awaken the monster within you.

Even though they know, how to fight with spear

Against those that want to give them the flu.

Do you sometimes wish, you had a clue?

How to turn your inner world into Art

That will make sure everyone is not blue.

If so, then please do open up your heart

So that your much admired outer beauty

Will be congruent with your personality.

The Screaming Cow

It’s a troublesome world. All the people who are in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot, for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not.

Dr. Seuss

The cow, still screams loud
In a place meant to hold her
Till she is ready-
For the slaughter to begin.
Who can ever be?

Fear Not

The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.

The Emperor

Fear not!

For although the though times

Will stop you from making rhymes
That smile as they walk a mile
In eternal lines to time.

They will also

Sharpen you like
A whetstone on a knife
To make sure you can cut
Through the strife that seeks to end your life.
