In the middle of high seas
Water all around
No land in sight
Too tired to swim

Dying hope shall bring death
Broken spirit shall drown the soul
A wasted life - the heart wails
A promise gone stale

A Forceful Personality

In work life, especially that of a manager, you come across a wide array of personalities, that you may never meet otherwise, especially people with a dash of the remarkable - those who make you sit up and notice them.

Just lately I have come across such a person - his charisma blows you away, he oozes power, he inspires one to be as forceful as him and one feels there is so much to learn from him. I consider myself a very energetic person, when I am inspired, but this man awes me by his indefatigable reserve of energy that is never ending!

I am also amazed by his confidence to take on seemingly impossible tasks and get them done - accomplish so much in such a short span of time just by sheer force of energy - catch an army of men, by the scruffs of their necks and lead them on in the direction he wants...the direction which he is sure will lead to victory.

And truly an army follows such a leader into even a fiercely dragging whirlpool with the belief that they will get out of it...for as they say, "any army values a general who leads it to victories!"
