The Man In The Moon Stayed Up Too Late

Poem By John Ronald Reuel Tolkien

Come far, but still far
Still far from expectation
Still far from destination
But how much far?
This I cannot fathom
But one thing I know
I’ve from come far

I will keep fighting on
Hoping against hope
That my destined terminus
Will, in time, be reached

I will get there, definitely
It won’t be easy, yet
Heavens, knows how
But as sure as the sun rises
Every blessed break of day
I will arrive in flying colours
I will surely overcome
For I am a winner
He is on my side

Experience, The Best Teacher

When I was a student,
Many a teacher preached a sermon.
A sermon of, surprisingly, same subject.
This tedious theme could be thus summarized:

Do Your Very Best

In everything
At every time
At everywhere
Just do your very best.

The Refugees's Plight

We came on our own
Apparently, not for adventure
Plausibly, not for purer pastures
Visibly, not for viable ventures

Now I Understand

With age the clouds began to clear
Every life event became steadily clearer
With boost from experience
All the puzzles of childhood

Valentine Time

Valentine is here
Love is in the air
Everybody becomes a lover
Love is by all, demonstrated

Women's Month

Women's month
Month to acknowledge women
To show our appreciation, explicitly
For their contribution, exceedingly central
