Sonnet: On Crucial Times
They test my patience severely, some souls,
by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,
When success lurks around the corner just;
No more am I a square peg in round holes;
No more will my books gather house-dust.
The world looks down upon an artist new,
And discourages talents found galore;
The righteous and the sane persons are few;
But why worry when God opened my door.
Determination is the primal key;
Unlocking truthfully labour's pad-lock;
And sacrifice of precious time's, the fee;
Before an artist dons his glorious frock.
In some more time, the world will accept him,
And life will always shine, never be grim.
