Once Failure Crossed My Path

Once failure crossed my path.
All I wondered was life was out of blue.

Like a rainstorm it touched me with the naked fact; "I have failed."

Veronica Kudnavar
A Song Of Success

Ho! we were strong, we were swift, we were brave.
Youth was a challenge, and Life was a fight.
All that was best in us gladly we gave,
Sprang from the rally, and leapt for the height.

Robert Service
I Ment To Find Her When I Came;

I meant to find her when I came;
Death had the same design;
But the success was his, it seems,
And the discomfit mine.

Emily Dickinson

I am just like a drop of the rain,
That success I always gain.
To live a meaningful life is main,
My dreams are long like a train.

Saiyam Sharma
Don't Quit, Say I Can...

Life is a queer with its twist and turn,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many failures turn about,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,

Archie Waugh - Kehimkar
The Limitations Of Greatness

NO MAN really knows enough
To be hateful to his brother,
None is rich enough to cuff
And be cruel to another;

Gone Not Forever

You gone?
Tell him to love you harder,
Never strike your head deeper,
Not walk away when you shout,

Again I

Again I knocked on the close door!
Again I am granted entry!

Again I pursued my goal!

Motionless woman,steadfast woman
Sitting on a throne of gold
In your eyes are dreams of the world
In your ways have you brought up mankind

Esther Ayanlowo
A Journey On Flooded Ways

I flushed my legs daring the cold
The bus had stopped and skies were gold
My feet became pedals cycling
But slow repelled by winds blowing

Fatimah Bint Abdil Alim

Tune - "Here's a health to them that's awa."


Robert Burns

You ask me what I call Success-
It is, I wonder, Happiness?

It is not wealth, it is not fame,

Robert Service
Love Is The Most Important

It's sadness in the world, despair, pain,
Nothing is easy, nothing is certain,
Only the sea, the sun and the sky makes me happy and i think,
That's worthy to fight and for life to win.

Cristina Teodor
That Time Is Not Far Away

That time is not far away, when you too will love me.
At that time, you want to be humble.
But no, your fate will find Deirdar-e-Man.

The anniversary of great heroes were observed,
For their unwavering service,
Thinking for the good causes,
Scarifying ones happiness on others.

Under Which Lyre


(Phi Beta Kappa Poem, Harvard, 1946)

What is life all about?
Work and fight, sweat and struggle,
To live a life in this world,
Life is full of ups & downs,

Beyond The Complexion

Africa my dying land
Africa the field of blood
Africa the ignorant and blind
This mythical spiritual mantra

The life-saving ocean you are only struggling
The struggle of a struggling man will one day
reach the peak of success
truth verse

Murari Lal
Bad Days

A smiling moon is a hearts desire ,
But eclipses are what make it worth ,
O forlorn night why do you despair?
Your deepest sorrow is your prettiest attire.


And is it not a gesture grand
To drink oneself to death?
Oh sure 'tis I can understand,
Being of sober breath.

Robert William Service
Elegy Xix. - Written In Spring, 1743

Again the labouring hind inverts the soil;
Again the merchant ploughs the tumid wave;
Another spring renews the soldier's toil,
And finds me vacant in the rural cave.

William Shenstone
Die For Non

Life is full of ups and down,
Mixed with happiness and sorrows,
Success and failure,
Profit and loss.

Norbu Dorji
A Journey

It's a journey . . . that I propose . . . I am not the guide . . . nor technical assistant . . . I will be your fellow passenger . . .

Though the rail has been ridden . . . winter clouds cover . . . autumn's exuberant quilt . . . we must provide our own guide-posts . . .


Nikki Giovanni
Four Walking Men

They doubt the light in their eyes
and well the fire in their hearts
that fire holds em from falling
and gives em hope to keep fighting

Malagala Umar
Save The Mother Earth Before It's Too Late

Save the mother earth,
Save the mother earth and appreciate.
Give and show love not hate,
Respect mother nature never underestimate.

Quencie D.r.
Like A Vocation

Not as that dream Napoleon, rumour's dread and centre,
Before who's riding all the crowds divide,
Who dedicates a column and withdraws,
Nor as that general favourite and breezy visitor

W. H. Auden
A Successful Dad

OTHERS may laugh at my feeble endeavor
To capture life's prizes, and others may sneer;
The whole world may loudly declare I shall never
Be worthy the gunpowder to blow me from here.

Edgar Albert Guest
The Odyssey: Book 09

And Ulysses answered, “King Alcinous, it is a good thing to hear a
bard with such a divine voice as this man has. There is nothing better
or more delightful than when a whole people make merry together,
with the guests sitting orderly to listen, while the table is loaded

The World Is Against Me

'The world is against me,' he said with a sigh.
'Somebody stops every scheme that I try.
The world has me down and it's keeping me there;
I don't get a chance. Oh, the world is unfair!

Edgar Albert Guest

Perfection isn't dedication,
That runs with the mind of education.

The limitation it makes ,

Joseph Nwakushabeni
The Proof Of Worth

Though victory's proof of the skill you possess,
Defeat is the proof of your grit;
A weakling can smile in his days of success,
But at trouble's first sign he will quit.

Edgar Albert Guest
Carry On

It's easy to fight when everything's right,
And you're mad with the thrill and the glory;
It's easy to cheer when victory's near,
And wallow in fields that are gory.

Robert Service

He, who navigated with success
the dangerous river of his own birth
once more set forth


Margaret Atwood
Amateur Poet

You see that sheaf of slender books
Upon the topmost shelf,
At which no browser ever looks,
Because they're by . . . myself;

A Modest Request

Complied With After The Dinner At President Everett's Inauguration

Scene, - a back parlor in a certain square,
Or court, or lane, - in short, no matter where;

Oliver Wendell Holmes

He gave a picture exhibition,
Hiring a little empty shop.
Above its window: FREE ADMISSION
Cajoled the passers-by to stop;

Robert Service
An Address To The New Tay Bridge

Beautiful new railway bridge of the Silvery Tay,
With your strong brick piers and buttresses in so grand array,
And your thirteen central girders, which seem to my eye
Strong enough all windy storms to defy.

William Topaz Mcgonagall

Enlaced with gardened jewelry
My basking villas nest
Where sifted sunshine soothes the eye
And cosy hillocks rest.

Bernard O'dowd

I hold it one of the sad certain laws
Which makes our failures sometime seem more kind
Than that success which brings sure loss behind-
True greatness dies, when sounds the world's applause

Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The Swimmer

With short, sharp, violent lights made vivid,
To southward far as the sight can roam,
Only the swirl of the surges livid,
The seas that climb and the surfs that comb.

Adam Lindsay Gordon

Till midnight her needle she plied
To finish her pretty pink dress;
“Oh, bless you, my darling,” she sighed;
“I hope you will be a success.”

HOW very hard it is to be
A Christian! Hard for you and me,
â??Not the mere task of making real
That duty up to its ideal,

Robert Browning
To A Young Man

The great were once as you.
They whom men magnify to-day
Once groped and blundered on life's way,
Were fearful of themselves, and thought

Progress In The Pacific

Lapp'd in blue Pacific waters lies an isle of green and gold,
A garden of enchantment such as Eden was of old;
And the innocent inhabitants, pure children of the sun,
Resembled those of Eden, tooâ??in more respects than one.

James Brunton Stephens
The Iliad Of Homer: Translated Into English Blank Verse: Book I.

Argument Of The First Book.

The book opens with an account of a pestilence that prevailed in the Grecian camp, and the cause of it is assigned. A council is called, in which fierce altercation takes place between Agamemnon and Achilles. The latter solemnly renounces the field. Agamemnon, by his heralds, demands Brisë is, and Achilles resigns her. He makes his complaint to Thetis, who undertakes to plead his cause with Jupiter. She pleads it, and prevails. The book concludes with an account of what passed in Heaven on that occasion.

William Cowper
Metamorphoses: Book 10

Thence, in his saffron robe, for distant Thrace,
Hymen departs, thro' air's unmeasur'd space;
By Orpheus call'd, the nuptial Pow'r attends,
But with ill-omen'd augury descends;

Success And Failure

I do not think all failure's undeserved,
And all success is merely someone's luck;
Some men are down because they were unnerved,
And some are up because they kept their pluck.

Edgar Albert Guest

Hope is a word
Written deep in the heart &
Thoughts of every human being,
That makes our mentality firm.

Norbu Dorji
America The Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
