If there can be appeal In the scar on that face, I will take my weakness With a lot of grace, If every tumble gives you a chance To rise erect with a new stance, When the going gets tough The tough get going Yesterday, I fell too Get up again and start moving. In the classroom the young boy From his neighbour snatched the toy. The truck rammed into the car With all its might, Killed the occupants and threw Them out a sight, The sky roared with thunder Scared stiff as they went down under. My weakness shall he my strength, May I never misuse it Even for one moment. The meek shall inherit the earth. Published in Daily Times, April 30th 2018.
