musings of hope

say not the struggle noth availeth....


Say not the struggle naught availeth, 
The labour and the wounds are vain, 
The enemy faints not, nor faileth, 
And as things have been they remain. 

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars; 
It may be, in yon smoke conceal'd, 
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers, 
And, but for you, possess the field. 

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking, 
Seem here no painful inch to gain, 
Far back, through creeks and inlets making, 
Comes silent, flooding in, the main. 

And not by eastern windows only, 
When daylight comes, comes in the light; 
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly! 
But westward, look, the land is bright! 

                                            

                                          Arthur Hugh Clough

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,How charged with punishments the scroll,
                          
    I am the master of my fate....
                                   I am the captain of my soul.....!!!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT....

i promise not to be a victim of circumstances...not to wallow in self pity or misery,and understanding that human essence is beyond success's and failures...
the intricate web of life has perfect designs and plans for each one of us...and that each individual is special in its own right...and that no one steps on each other 's destiny...!!!
so,god has ordained a path for me too...it is just that i havent met my path...
                                              god blesses all
                                                           namaste....

i wandered lonely as a cloud...........

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth

butterfly

 The mark of your ignorance is 

the depth of your belief in 

injustice and tragedy. What the 

caterpillar calls the end of the 

world, the master calls a 

butterfly......

the eternal hope...




                                          "Whatever you can do, or dream you

                                                 can begin it. Boldness has genius,

                                                          power and magic in it...."

                                                                                   - Goethe




i know that god's grace wont desert me...and just that it is a tough time and god wants me to walk by faith and not by sight...
we all feel hopeless at some point in our time and all around us seems to be falling apart...but they really are bridges of growth...!!
                            we emerge on the other side with a new understanding,it is almost as though we must go through the pain ,the struggle,in order to grow and reach new heights....
        
And as my papa says too...."ONE FALL DOESNOT MAKE A FIASCO....."
                            AND     
                    TOMMORROW IS A NEW DAY.....
so,i wont give up...
as i remember the lines from shashank redemption.....

       "hope is a good thing..may be the best of things and no good thing ever dies"

so..keep the faith...
God...please judge tenderly of me!!!!
   adios...
