Believe true

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At times in life we go through a very rough patch
When problems befall us in an overwhelming batch
And our fighting spirit is barely able to outmatch
The hardships we encounter and the fate they latch
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve

At times we try our level best to get our efforts to hatch
But it’s like we’re chasing dreams which we cannot catch
We become enslaved by fears and doubts that dispatch
From our day to day struggles and the woes that attach
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve

At times we itch in places we cannot reach to scratch
And being happy becomes a leisure we have to snatch
Sometimes our past is like a hole we can’t fill or thatch
And in order to progress we must start over from scratch
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve

At times success looks way beyond our reach
And it’s hard to practice the steps men preach
So many poems been written to guide and teach
Yet the hurdles in place seem impossible to breach
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve

Poetic words can make it sound like a walk on a beach
That life’s answers are often available and open to each
And all we have to do is to pluck them like a peach
By transgressing beyond the limits circumstances impeach
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve

At times it feels like a deaf ear has been turned by the God we beseech
And uttered words of wisdom, of hope and inspiration seem like a useless speech
When we are weak, tired and drained by life’s blood sucking leech
That brings our fortunes wheel to a halt with a life shattering screech
But if only we believe! There is nothing we can’t achieve
