POETIC THURSDAYS (50)

RISE AND SHINE : AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM BY ME.

I am afraid I have run short of words. 
To express how I feel. 
I am like a caged bird, 
Wanting to fly, but experiencing Achilles Heel. 

I keep on telling my silly heart. 
You can't please everyone. 
Don't be naive and try to be smart. 
For you are inferior to none. 

Yet, somehow I go back to being slack. 
And the fire within me fizzles out. 
How can I think of going back? 
And allow myself to be overtaken by self-doubt? 
 
It's not the time to rest or immerse in self-pity. 
It's time to rise like a Phoenix. 
And now I am back again to do my duty. 
And won't let my pathetic mind play funny tricks. 

There are many obstacles in this journey called life. 
Each one is meant to make you strong. 
It's smooth sailing for some people, while it's full of strife. 
But it sure wouldn't last for long. 


Fear of failure is the greatest impediment to success.
Don't be afraid to fail. 
Don't grant negativity and pessimism any access. 
To your mind but continue to sail. 

The winds of fortune will definitely blow our way. 
We must not lose sight of our goals and aims. 
We will be successful one day. 
Despite our detractors playing unfair games. 

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to visit my website. Hope you enjoyed reading my blogs.
