Hardly did I see
mostly I do not notice
rarely I do speak
rightly I missed the chance .
Opportunity knocks at the door
only once they say
it did dash into the portals
I did pay no attention.
The fortunate see thing right
be in the spot at the propitious moment
seize the schedule almost
go across in a successful note.
Those be the lucky ones I thought
and I am the most unlucky I felt
Lo! it is not so in the game
the one who picks first is the winner.
No use lamenting I decide
it is not in me to grab or rush
the patience I bear is crucial
that determines my fortune.
Greatly it is that which holds
the more you cling to it strongly
the most weak you turn out
better leave it at that level.
Calm is the criteria for me
how come I am made so?
I forsake all my legitimate rights
yet I live happily ever after.
There came a black bird
sat on a huge blue gird
chirping and chattering in glee
seeing an eagle it took a flee
flying past the huge ocean
with its mind full of tension
scared of being caught
migrating to a place of hot
hoping the big eagle would not come
so that it could be saved from
the seize of the daring bird
which came up and sat on the blue gird.
An inch given liberally directs to a yard taken forcefully
A slight relaxation in principles leads to a violent sweep,
A little mistake in calculations brings out a huge lapse,
A careless slip in driving renders a ghastly accident,
As always small becomes big while big assumes a monstrous sight
So it goes a tiny pinch rolls out a sizeable bite which reinforces an amazing seize.
