“You are rising too fast
You are aiming too high…
Courage is foolish –
Brave people die!”
‘Where are you growing to?’
‘Why such a rush? They’ll implore
‘It’s just your pride…’ They will add…
‘We don’t believe you should take the floor!’
Yes, one should challenge oneself
And one must question their thoughts…
Not to succumb to misleading voices
or misdirection of untamable wants…
Where are we growing to?
Are we growing at all?
Are we rising to greatness?
Or preparing to fall?
Reaching out to heavens,
Or in the other direction?
Are our minds filled with ego?
Or with divine perception?
If you’re growing the right way
There is no need to explain…
Critics won’t go away
They will forever remain…
So, keep on growing to where
You were created to grow…
Don’t let the skeptics define you
Enticing your mind to stay small
So… what about you?
Where are you growing to?
Our days are numbered you see
We have limited minutes and hours
After the danger of spring frost is past –
Have courage to bloom… like Sunflowers!
