A Growing Up Sturdy Tree Inspiring Others To Grow

In the open air , on barren ground,

with no one there all around,

I fell as a seed,

from a very strange source,

to lead the life that I have found.

I never thought while staying in soil,

hard work is a waste, times foil,

I knew in my heart

I will come up,

success will come with my ceaseless toil.

One day I came out from clayey sand, stretching out wide my leafy hand,

swaying in the wind,

my young , green leaves,

I flaunt proudly, how much I’m grand.

I, like the seed, felt the darkness of the unknown,was anxious of being in a place I did not feel I had chosen but yet was excited to see the new and grow up.

Growing faster and faster day by day,

making my life happy and gay,

taller I become ,

sturdier I grow,

year after year in this world I’ll stay.

Today I’m a robust, huge, tall tree

leading a life independent and free,

my roots are deep,

my trunk is strong,

I look around like a watchful sentry.

Looking at me other’s admire,

the other seedlings I inspire,

‘grow up like me,’

I say to them,

‘don’t be lazy, put out your fire’.

I inspire the sad , downhearted plant,

leave the life which is useless and blunt,

bring success in yourself,

holding my hands,

to the weak twinners, blessings I grant.

Watchful, sentry eyes

I don't want my pain and struggle to be a part of your life, but want you to inspired by my battle.

That’s how I am great today,

with raised leafy branches to god I pray,

I’m brave in my heart,

strong in my roots,

struggle hard that’s what I say.

I have strong roots, so I mock at the storm.

Growing Up

Sometimes you have to stay silent , digest your pride, discard ego and accept your wrong.It is not humiliation , it is not failure , it is not giving up , IT IS GROWING UP.

Growing up is when you learn How To Show Concern

  • Growing up is to SHOW CONCERN
  • Growing up is to CONSOLE
  • Growing up is to be UNDERSTANDING
  • Growing up is to CARE.


Never Underestimate Your Strength

The best way to become self- confident is-

  • to do everything that you are afraid of doing.
  • be gentle with your self .
  • respect yourself and your abilities.
  • to accept your flaws.
  • not to be ashamed to present yourself the way you are.

You Need to First Fall in Order to Know How to Stand

Painful start of every beginning

Every successful person has a painful story .

Every painful story has a successful ending.

Pain is your path to success.

Hard work is the key to success.

"Most people don't grow up . Most people age.They had parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married , have children , and call them maturity."

- Maya Angelou

Coming together is a beginning , keeping together is progress, working together is success- HENRY FORD.

Helping Is the Act, Blessing Is the Result

The purpose of life is not be happy..but to bring happiness in others.

KINDNESS is the best medicine to heal.. spread it as much as possible. Inspire others with your virtues.
