Again And Again

Again And Again short poem

Photo by paul bica

Why do I wish to swim
Against the river flow?
I know well
I will have to struggle
More and more.
I know that
Flowing downstream
Is an easy task
As compared to upstream.
I also know that
Well wishers standing
On both the banks
Will clap and laugh.
If I win,
They will say:
Their encouragement
Is responsible for the success.
If unfortunately
I lose,
They will not wait a second
To say that
They tried their best
To stop me
By laughing at me.
In both the cases
I will lose and
They will win.
Even then
I will swim
Against the river flow
Again and again.
