Battered by the prose of life
day and night,
He learned to cope with calamities
and the denial of opportunities,
As he was determined right from
the beginning not to be swept by
the tsunamis of life,
He knew that he would have to make
his way when the path was absent,
And he would have to learn how to swim
over the roughest ocean.
Nothing in terms of hurdles and calamities
would make him lose the focus and resolve.
But he never learned how to cope with
the love and care, tenderness and praise,
As these were unknown to him.
So he was found to be overwhelmed with emotion,
When the tenderness was displayed!
