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


Roughened hands these are
with their wrinkles and folds.
Numerous in numbers
like ridges sprinkled upon hills.
With the many calluses
earned like a badge;
through sweat and fierce struggle.
What could be more glorious
than the sight of a person
hard at work?
Struggling against the odds,
wrestling hand by hand,
battling wave after wave,
against insurmountable trials -
ultimately victorious over adversity.

On hardwork and how it can lead to greater acheivement. In this poem, I want to cast the light on those in life who endures terrible calamities yet still stives on for success.
