PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE

PADDLE YOUR OWN CANOE

 

Stand tall, raise high, blame not thy lot,
Tread path swift, find faults naught;


Decisions tough, impediments bountiful, solution yet to find,
On crossroads held, crisscross paths, life entwined!


Hold your ground yet firmly tread,
Not a cake walk though, life’s hostile instead;


Exhibit valour, let spirits soar high,
Vanquish hurdles, flaunt thy smile, triumph’s nigh!


Befogged vision, life seems tangled,
Heartbroken defeated when dreams mangled;


With courage steadfastness you shall carry,
Never give up though the circumstances are contrary!


Choicest blessings the Divine shall bestow,
If and only if you Paddle Your Own Canoe!
