Hard Work Vs Luck


Giving up all the pleasures

Burning the midnight oil

Way beyond all measures

That’s how hard he toiled !


Day after day, night after night

Perseverance was his game

He never ever let out of sight,

His goal, his purpose, his aim !


But on one arduous occasion,

Luck gave him no favor,

Left his morale with abrasions

His will power wavered.


Disappointed and despondent,

He started doubting his merit,

Hard work was replaced by lament

Luck was something he did not inherit


But then one fine day, he resolved

Not to give up in the fight

Failure made him evolve

Into a person of great will and might


Numerous times in his struggle he fell

But he was never to be backed down

And steadily increased, his drive to excel

Toughest obstacle could not knock him down.


Again he fell, and got up

And the cycle continued

Till the time when even Luck asked him

“What have you got in you ?”


“Oh mighty warrior, the shining knight”

“I have tried my best to defeat you”

“But you bounce back every time

“How on earth, I have no clue”


Persistent effort is the secret, he said

Hard work is the key

 Luck – “I can hold no longer, take your success

Today, you have defeated me ! “
