I read the story of John.
His life is inspiring I wish to imbibe
A story of a man in 1830’s
I am astounded.
He suffered so much in his prime
He was declared insolvent. It was a manipulated attempt.
His foes won.
He appealed and restored his pride.
He did not wish to stay in his country.
Set sail to a distant land
with his wife and three kids.
It was a journey that lasted 130 days.
He worked with diligence. Struggled.
His unstinted tries made him a millionaire.
Earned fame. His publications grew .
He became a baron.
He went back to his motherland.
Paid his creditors the principal with interest.
I admire the man. My heart goes out to him.
I salute his greatness. His integrity is honourable. A few are there.
Such men are rare. A few we find.
May their tribe increase.
