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


A moment of triumph,
a moment of doubt,
and a feeling of isolation.

How the smile on my face
swelled, like an apple
ripe red after an harvest;
glistening with droplets of sunshine.

How the smile on my face
wavered then faltered,
like a leaf in flight -
fluttering up then down, left then right.

How the smile on my face
drooped like an arching parabola;
slowly ascending, slowly declining,
as if in a pilgrimage of solitude.

Triumph, doubt, isolation;
all enriched, all bequeathed, all endowed
an individual
with a sip of life.

 On the phases of life, from triumph, down to isolation...leaving one nearly unable to smile.
