If your life is in shambles and things are falling apart,
It’s only an indication to begin anew from the start.
If the winds of misfortune are blowing your way,
Wait a while before you have your say.
If everything you touch is turning to dust,
Don’t panic, be calm & patient- because you must.
If you feel life is leading you to the gutter,
Don’t give up or lose hope in confusion, utter.
If you feel in your loved ones, you cannot take pleasure,
Remember, those are the only relationships to treasure.
So, put your chin up and smile a bit,
A banyan will grow back, even if by lightning hit!
