LegalPoet used to blog on LegallyIndia. I enjoyed my time there thoroughly and now hope to write for this website every Sunday.
The Only Way
Let me confess first
This entrepreneur is little,
The soul is strong
And the heart is brittle.
Or it could be the other way!
I jumped off the cliff
In the deep blue sea
And hope to swim
With pirates and pearls
And weeds and fish.
Oh! Let it be that way.
I did jump to test gravity.
I am swimming to test vanity.
And when I reach the shore and say
“That everything lies in Damnity“.
I’ll know (as sure as now)
That it is the only way!
Round the clock I swim and swim.
The sinews go weak, the lights go dim.
[The waves are moving. The ship is moving].
The mind grows strong and a push it gives
“Work for another hour”, it says.
Oh! That is the only way.
At night the waves, they go still.
Triton is pleased, and he the Whiz
Lets me sleep a contentful sleep
The content is joy, pure bliss
Of slogging hard, the sleep and…Hey!
You move again! The only way.
Damnity: Its saying “Ha!” to everything that holds you back. And then moving ahead to hold that thing in your hand and crushing it.
