A touch of nostalgic fluff

Dusting ashes of yesteryears

When life was hard

And time was pressing

Depression hit; economy turned rut.

What remains were frustrations;

Goals were unattained;

The place of success

Was nowhere around;

Lost and disoriented.

Hard climb it was

Uphill, downhill;

Fortune wasn’t smiling

Nor the sun shining;

Afar, the horizon blinkered.

The gleam of hope rose;

Perseverance persisted;

Sweat beads of long toils

Left the marrow dry;

Eschew adversity, let flow the dreams.
