Is that true

Life is a lamp,
That cannot be lit,
A narrow hole,
Where we do not fit.

Two things are main,
For both liveliness and gain,
One we should always do,
After a goal we choose,
Other is the spirit,
We should never loose.

It can easily be said no,
But one should give a go,
And let others know,

That with try and trial no matter who,
There's always something one can do.

Life is a bent slope,
From where we can fall,
But if we have hope,
We can change it all.

    Why has this been entered in the "Lightfoot" contest. I don't see any reference to a Lightfoot song in this poem, did you mean to enter it in some other contest perhaps?

    I am sorry, while entering contests I didn't read the conditions and terms of topics to refer to and just entered the poems I had written. Later, I realized they had to be related. I don't know how to come out of the contests I have entered. I had thought that only the contests were held by different people and had different titles, and anyone could enter any poem any he/she had written.... I don't know what to do now.... I hope this information can be passed on to other contests I have entered in.
