The autumn leaves
The petering drips
The days and nights
Things change, yet
remain the same

The barren tree
The closed tap
A sluggish mind
Listlessly watches
the passing of time

Passionate restlessness

In the still quietness
you come as an ethereal music

In calm restfulness
you usher passionate restlessness

You bring torrential rains
In the barren wilderness

Awash, overwhelmed I am
Lost are the days of idle peace

Facing up to Fate

He who lacks belief in himself
What kind of man is he?
Who cannot conquer his own fears
And yet talks of bravery!

Those who know not what is right
Pity them that they cannot decide
Deride the one who lacks courage
To stand for, knowing what is right

For "they are brave who dare to be
In the right with just two or three"

The brave champions for the good
Knowing the odds stacked up against
He doesnt run away from the field
Even after a thousand slashes of Destiny

What best can Fate determine, but half
Countered by a determined will
Against the vicissitudes of life
Faith and Courage shall stand still

Ye man, believe
that you can be - a good man
even against the will
of Destiny!
