Be the Steadfast Ruler in Your Kingdom

If you want to rule in your kingdom,

Shirk negativity, put a step forward, many or some.

Uneasy might be the path to achieve your crown,

Just put on the ‘I CAN do attitude’ braving the thorns.

Pump deep into the inner resource of your heart,

Cast away weakness, spot rich openings to play your part.

Do not PROCRASTINATE for it is time’s thief,  

Make big decisions fast, be the dreamer in life.

Your value and productivity make better,

Know that you can change life for better.


In your determination be firmly resolute.

And in your dedication be astute.

Let your aspirations reign supreme,

Become inspiration for others with joy to beam,

Let action be the tool to pursue your dream.

Instead of binding yourself in shackles,

keep going till you overcome obstacles.

Why wait for manna from heaven,

God has endowed you with your inbuilt heaven,

Invite your forethought, plan and make it happen.


Let’s try to reach the uttermost limit,

On this world’s stage, be examples of being a hit.

Be a lifelong learner, let us shine like the brightest star,

Inviting new insights, nothing will mar.

Belief in your capacity, make the quintessence,

Invite a positive mindset as the essence.

Magic ripples will automatically start forming,

In circles, your confidence highly boosting.

Uplift yourself continuously to stimulate your stamina,

And enhance your persona.
