There was this race i wanted to win on a bright sunny morning. Not for the price of it nor for the sake of it. I just wanted to be the best. I wanted to measure my potential-to see how i fared against my friends. But then i did not win that race.
There is this exam i wanted to get the first rank. I had given up enough for it. I thought that no one could beat me. I had prepared so well that i could sing it like a song. In my dreams,i would write till morning. But then i did not get the first rank.
There is this lady that i wanted to win. I had all it would need any man to have-my physique,smile,demeanor all that stuff. I was both close to her as well as her parents. I could feel her deep within my heart. But then she grew wings and flied away.
There is this machine i needed desperately. Being in my final year,doing a project in video editing an no computer was killing. Having one would save me the hell. An industrious monster called economic crisis visited me. I could never have what i needed.
There is this camp i wanted to attend. Not because i had no other work to do. Not because i had any date. I was seeking for spiritual restoration. I was in search for God. I was hungry and thirsty for him. But the camp was relocated far away.
There is this story i want to tell. Not that i am complaining but it is what happens. Life is not a party of cocktail and buffet. You may lose now but never give up hope.You were born to win. And victory does not have to be in the first attempt.
