Why feel so upset and look so glum,
Just because a few things in life went wrong,
Troubles will go and troubles will come,
They are there just to make us strong!
Look at the wonderful nature all around,
a great example of a cheerful fight against all worry,
Although in threads of care nature too is wound,
Yet each component of it is worth some individual glory.
When the power of storm casts on the Earth a gloom,
And the world is enveloped in a dull darkness,
The sun suddenly spins out on its invisible loom,
A thin ray of sunshine which spreads some brightness.
The seemingly carefree birds so happily keep flying,
Chirping and singing cheerful songs with no mortal fear,
Oblivious of the snare & the trap & the net & the birdlime,
Never hopeless for they know that there is hope even in despair!
Each part of nature has a message to convey,
So learn from the nature all around,
Even the moon peeping from behind the cloud seems to say,
‘Fear not friend for there is light behind every cloud!’
