When life gets tough, the road’s all steep,
Money’s low, and you sigh and weep,
Though challenges come and plans go awry,
Don’t give in; aim high, touch the sky.

In life’s journey, twists will arise,
Failures can turn into grand prize,
Don’t stop when the progress is slow,
Another attempt, and success will glow.

People quit when they’re almost there,
Victory’s scent fills the air,
Too late they see, with the night’s last breath,

2. Title: “Thinking”

If you believe you’re beaten, it’s true,
If you think you can’t, you won’t pursue,
To win the game, but think you can’t,
You’ve set a course for your dreams to recant.

If you fear you’ll fail, that’s your fate,
For success starts with a determined state,
It’s all within your frame of mind,
The power of thought, to success, is aligned.

If you feel outclassed and in despair,
Hold your head high; success is in the air,
Believe in yourself before the race,
To claim the prize, you must set the pace.

Life’s battles favor no one side,
Not always strength or speed as your guide,
Sooner or later, it’s clearly seen,
The one who believes, reigns as the queen or king!

3. Title: “Dreams”

Embrace your dreams, let them guide your way,
For when dreams fade, hope starts to sway,
Life becomes a bird with a fractured wing,
Unable to soar, unable to sing.

Hold tight to dreams, they’re the seeds you sow,
When dreams depart, life’s fields are snow,
Barren and cold, a desolate sight,
Dreams bring warmth, dreams bring light.

Let your dreams lead, through night and day,
When dreams persist, they light the way,
Life’s potential is vast, if your dreams stay alive,
In the darkest moments, they’ll help you thrive.

Keep your dreams alive, no matter how it seems,
In them, you’ll find the essence of your dreams,
For in dreams lies the heart’s true glow,
A life full of purpose, ready to grow.

4. Title: “In Spite of War”

Despite war’s shadow, death’s cold breath,
Inside, something laughs, defying death,
With all my breath, I’ll sing and soar,
Praising life, forevermore.

In the midst of war, in hate’s cruel path,
Lilacs bloom, dispelling wrath,
Tulips dance along the way,
Defying war’s night, bringing day.

“Courage,” morning-glory whispers low,
“Rejoice,” daisies in the garden glow,
Life’s ecstasy, a constant flame,
In spite of war, it’s still the same.

Clouds and sea in a wondrous dance,
Life’s enduring, taking its chance,
Through despair and war’s cruel breath,
In spite of all, we conquer death.

Want to know your deepest yearn,
What makes your fervent passions burn,
Not your job or years amassed,
But what in life, forever will last.

Can you risk the foolish way,
For love and dreams, come what may,
Embrace adventure, without disguise,
And savor the thrill of being alive.

I don’t need to know where you reside,
Or what wealth you try to hide,
But can you stand the trials with grace,
In the heart of the fire, your rightful place.

Your knowledge and studies aren’t the key,
But what keeps your soul set free,
Can you be alone, content and clear,
In your own company, void of fear.

People can self-centered, and unkind,
Yet, forgive them with a generous heart.
Kindness might be misread as a hidden ploy,
Be kind, let your actions bring joy.

Success may draw false friends and true foes,
But continue to rise, and your character shows.
Honesty may invite betrayal, it’s true,
Still, be forthright, it’s the best you can do.

Today’s good deeds might fade away,
Do them still, let kindness have its say.
Give the world your very best each day,
It may never be enough, but it’s the way.

In the end, it’s a connection with the Divine,
Between you and God, it will always shine.
It was never truly about them, you’ll see,
It’s the sacred bond that sets your spirit free.

In places of wealth and fame’s grand stride.
We chase it in palaces of fleeting pleasure,
In search of recognition and monetary treasure.

Within reach for all, no matter where we steer.
In giving joy to others, we’ll find it too,
A cycle of happiness, forever renew.

Brightening our lives in every way.
The happiness we share, it’s like a clue,
It returns to us, reflecting our own view.

In giving and receiving, life’s grand design.
The more we share, the more we accrue,
For happiness is a reflection of love pursued.

Life’s a guest house where we reside,
Each day, new emotions, a constant tide.
Joy, depression, sometimes unkind,
Brief moments visit, surprising our mind.

Welcome and host them with open arms,
Even if sorrow arrives in swarms,
Clearing your house, what a sight,
Perhaps making space for pure delight.

Dark thoughts, shame, or malice in disguise,
Greet them with laughter, be wise,
Invite them in, for they can be,
Guides from beyond, helping you see.

Gratitude for each guest, do extend,
For they come as messengers, a thoughtful blend.
In this human guest house, they’re sent your way,
To guide you through life, every single day.

10. Title: “Resilience and Integrity”

If you can keep your head, when they’re in doubt,
When all around are frantic and shout,
Trust in yourself when others question,
Yet empathize with their hesitation.

If you can wait, unweary of the hour,
When falsehoods spread, and liars have power,
Amidst the hate, your heart remaining clear,
With humble grace, your wisdom held dear.

When courage shines, in the face of fear,
Stand your ground, let your values appear,
In times of triumph and disaster the same,
Yours is the world, and honor your name.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your soul,
Or walk with kings, yet remain whole,
If neither foe nor friend can wrench your core,
You’ll be a person, and that’s worth much more.

Maya’s poem speaks of being undeterred,
Holding her head high, a spirit unperturbed.
It’s about behavior, not about the frame,

Confident, unique, and beautifully free.

For in your uniqueness, let your spirit reside.

The past, it has its purpose, that’s clear,
But dwelling there can bring only fear.

In their minds, it’s a relentless plea.

Their focus consumed by who they used to be,
Mistakes echo loudly, an unforgiving decree.
No matter how much they cry, try, or wish,
The past remains, a haunting, ceaseless dish.

Life’s moments unfold, in ways unforeseen,
Embrace the unknown, let your spirit glean.
Don’t wallow in the past, with regrets overdrawn,
Live for today, for what’s here at the dawn.

The past is behind, where it’s meant to stay,
Fixing it’s not an option, it’s faded away.
Unchangeable, done, don’t be forlorn,
Move forward, embrace what’s yet to be born.

I vowed I wouldn’t let tears flow,
At her airport farewell, I told myself so,
But when we embraced, it was time to show,
The truth in my heart, letting emotions go.

Once more, she leaves for France’s shore,
Temporary parting, we’ve been here before,
Yet we believe it won’t be a bore,
With hope that the separation won’t endure.

She has business, her duties to fulfill,
But her return, we’re certain, she will,
In a month or two, life’s wheel will still,
And this time, our hearts might fulfill.

Our connection remained, strong and strong,
Video calls bridged the miles, our song,
A love enduring, no matter how life’s gone.

Lost in this maze, a confusing ruckus,

Easily replaced, I’m left unnoticed,
Left to my devices, emotions unexpressed,
Restless and relentless, drowning in despair,
I wait for your rescue, in this endless affair.

Displaced and deluded, I’ve lost my way,
In the jungle of vices where I tend to sway,
Don’t seek the worst, let redemption begin,
In this world of chaos, I’m waiting to win.

As I wither, like the last drop in a drought so hard,
Still, I yearn for the chance to revive and mend,
In the hope that our love can transcend.

Before I could stir, I lay so still,
Breathing gently, like snow’s tranquil chill,
Solitude, a friend, an iron will,
Awaits the moment for my climb, an uphill skill.

Somewhere I knew, I’d rise, strong and fleet,
Time’s enigma sheltered my heartbeat,
Defying fate, where paths entreat,
Me and my will, in resolute defeat.

Before I chose stillness, I used to roam,
In life’s vast landscapes, where I found home,
Yet now the healer, once near, now gone,
Has returned to the source, where stars are strewn.

Before I could move, my path’s array,
Recalling my strength, in stillness I’d sway,
In the tranquil calm, I find my way,
To stand strong, as a new, hopeful day.
