From Rags to Riches

Wish I had a car

So I could quit

Travelling by the bus

Everyday is a war

A battle of wits

More doubts less trust

I am a man

Of many dreams

Born to a poor father

Who drove a mini van

Selling ice-creams

Where children gather

As a kid

Hated being poor

I promised to go high

Of my poverty get rid

Open new doors

In riches sigh

Never a penny

Of my father I did waste

But studied with my heart and soul

To achieve success many

Pass all the tests

And many a trophy hold

Whenever life made me angry

I worked hard some more

Till I got some more ahead

Never again go hungry

I promised from my core

Till I dozed off to sleep in my bed

Tomorrow is my very first day

Of a new job

As a officer of government

No more living in the house of clay

with leaking roof of water drops

Time to move to new apartment

Rejoice and celebrate

Sometimes a greater good

comes from inherent anger

Make you achieve things great

This I understood

It often saves you from some danger!


The WordPress Daily Prompt for June 1, asks us to reflect on the word, “Angry.”

    1. This is not really my story is about a deprived man who uses his anger to give him leverage in life and turns out to be a winner…Somewhere we all can draw inspiration from a story like this..I am glad you find it inspiring 🙂
