Never give up! Put in the hard work and efforts to achieve your ambitions and goals!


Deep within a sequoia labyrinth of forest,
a spiral of cloud ascended
upwards the red regnant sky.
As if like an emperor
with imperious airs mount his throne.
Within the forests, besides the spiral,
lay a vast open lake.
Encompassing the entire shore;
like a mother embracing her children
tight with warmth.

Sparkling waves gleamed,
tide after tide.
How the water captured the sunlight -
within every single droplets.
Like tears of joy
glazing in a mother's eyes;
at the sight of her children
ascending to the sky.
With a humble pride mingling
with a tinge of sadness.
