New Year 2014 Poem. When the going gets tough the tough get going by Rajiv Chanana. Happy New Year’s Eve, Yareah friends!
When the going gets tough the tough get going
When the going gets tough the tough get going,
All acts require effort whether it is sowing or mowing.
Only a true fighter reaps the fruit of success,
Idler plunges his life into a filthy mess.
Without an iota of doubt the path is treacherous,
Strong determination to succeed makes destination credulous.
Drug abuse and all bad habits give momentarily ease,
Guilt, shame, hatred grows and one is on his knees ,
You can make your life or throw it into a gutter,
Be humane or else shut every avenue shutter.
No religion preaches animosity and hatred of mankind,
Introspect religiously and many answers you will find,
Keep on walking and surely you will be a winner,
God is with one who is not a lazy sinner,
Study well, keep fit, respect elders and society,
Observe your growth from small to mighty.
Happiness, ecstasy, bliss all through the path of God,
Just relax and listen to wise music through his IPod.
Shun bad habits and bring revolution,
Stand up and make it New Year’s resolution.
YOU CAN! YES, YOU CAN! It’s not just a saying,
When the going gets tough, the tough get going.
