They say, life can amaze you,
For it can bring abrupt changes and turns.
But life is just a joyful ride,
For the one, who with experience learns.
A dream, an ambition, it is all attainable,
All you need to do, is believe.
A hope, some faith, will find its way,
All you need is an eye, to perceive.
Art is long, and Time is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave,
Still, like muffled drums, are beating
Funeral marches to the grave.
In the world’s broad field of battle,
In the bivouac of Life,
Be not like dumb, driven cattle!
Be a hero in the strife!
~Adv Ankita Wadhwa
