Realization in a man’s life.
A day I knew when I realized
Why need I hear- words of fake
For a job I’m declined, penalized
For it was my own mistake
Those were- the days of my boyhood
When unacknowledged that I was at stake
Left off the path my elders would
And it was my own mistake
I do remember the days of my youth
When I ne’er heard my own conscience
And went by the way for golden tooth
My comrades led. Alas! Unknown of what science
And thus they drowned me in trouble’s lake
Finally I got to mind their ill signs
None but, it was my own mistake
It reminds me- the time of school & colleges
The grief I bear; I ignored my elders
Who spoke the philosophies of all ages
And now a young leaf that soon withers
And it is the confession again I make
That it was my own mistake
Though my mistakes I do realize now
Let not me waste my time them about
And thus learn from them dwelling is how
And not repeat with that I’ve fought
And shall in further ne’er be at stake
And shall ne’er say or on myself doubt
That it was my own mistake.
