To Be Done

As duty calls and my work is yet to be done,

I am returning to the world of cares,

A place where the race takes place

With all the sidekicks possible.

Not that I care much for what comes now

As my part is in doing my job

Taking one day at a time, one step at a time,

Like a trusting child, like a bruised old woman.

So tired am I today that I yearn to sleep

But rest runs away for now;

The broken fragments all picked up again,

I move on in the battle of life.

Come what may, the work is there

To be done.

Hi Ayesha,

Very nice blog. I like it much. Your devotion for Krishna is very inspiring.

'Come what may, the work is there
To be done.'

I liked these lines very much.

Take heart from the fact that it is the same for all.If you consider work as worship, the scene is instantly transformed into a pleasurable experience.
Have great days ahead
