Big dreams and high ambitions

Engulf the young minds,

Desire for a rosy life

Of fame and comfort,

But feelings of despair

Cripple imagination,

When incidents occur

That never wished before.

It’s all right O seekers,

Bravely endure challenges…

The blows shall immune you and

Extract hidden talents from within,

You fall to rise again,

The dawn shall usher new scope,

Hard times come and go,

Pursue and enjoy life’s rainbow.
