IT TAKES A WILL TO CHANGE THE WORLD

IT TAKES A WILL TO CHANGE THE WORLD


Whenever in awe you are,
World jeering you with gales of laughter,
Downtrodden and lost in hope,
And when you feel you’re a dope…

Whenever your attempts turn futile,
Foot refuses to walk another mile,
Your sweats seep into dreary river bed
sinking beneath, unrewarded…

Whenever you feel agony in heart,
Your dreams shattered apart,
Repeated failures let you down
I pray, look around…

Look at those beauty created by men,
A car, computer, ship and plane,
Built by an assiduous man so blue
at initial failures just like you!

The will to succeed is what takes you
to success bulldozing your way through
obstacles of criticisms and blame,
Bearing only at the end, fruits of name and fame

Be it to paint the sky with colors manifold
Or to carve earth with gold,
It takes an optimist man, young or old
A will to change the world.
