Pain greeted me with a whimsical smile,
I greeted her back with endurance.
Misery played hide and seek with me,
I hid behind my smile and determination.
Time tested me against high and lows,
I suffered,but didn’t let my head bow.
Failure tried to break my spirit,
I got up and started afresh.
I fell and failed miserably and constantly,
Pushed by life in the darkest corner,
But I rose,and whenever will I fall,
I would rise again with a promise to succeed and a zeal anew
Because a man is not to be broken,
Because a man is not to be broken.
