The Making of a Guru

Life’s not easy

but there is no option.

 

I have to live

to survive

to the best of

my innate ability

the training received

and the scope of action.

 

Life’s not easy

but there is no option.

 

Come snow or rain

I move on

neck deep in

unfriendly environs.

To stop means to die

belying expectation.

 

Life’s not easy

But there is no option.

 

The freezing temperature

ignites the energy within

to move, to defy

to chart  a path ahead

to leave a trail behind

and display determination.

 

Life’s not easy

But there is no option.

 

Is it a challenge

or a skill acquired?

Will others learn from me

And emulate in need so dire?

I set an example

And pass on the baton.

 

Life’s not easy

but there is no option.
