I know it’s easy to preach than to practice but, I’d yet like to share a story that has always inspired me to undertake not giving up!
Spell “ASSASSINATION”! Indicated the teacher to her class
One word, she said could make them pass.
A-S-A… ‘INCORRECT.. Please sit’
One letter at fault she wouldn’t let them fit.
Stood another child trying to take the lead
‘Are you sure for your speech?’ his confidence mislead.
Trembling with fear of the teacher and their grades
The little minds couldn’t make effort to remove the barricades.
The loud noise of the school bell relieved their hearts off fear
As the teacher was leaving, stood firm a little one so near.
A-S-S-A-S… as she begin to spell
‘Haven’t you really heard the bell?’
A-S-S-A-S-S-I-N-A… she tried again
‘You’re quite late, you should’ve answered then.’
A-S-S-A-S-S-I-N-A-T-I-O-N she spoke with the speed of a bullet
The teacher turned back, her voice in the gullet.
‘Perfect!’ she said, congratulating the child
Content and confident now she smiled.
Just because all others even the stronger gave up
She didn’t wish to downturn the cup.
She tried and retried
Not so tough, but had a stride.
When she as a little one had the power to face
Why do we as grown-ups lose the grace.
Situations are not that easy now
But we can still keep moving somehow.
To give up is easier and takes no time
But let’s try the tougher route to turn ridicule to sublime!
