I was happy when people rejoiced,
I loved those who loved me,
I respected those who respected me,
I extended hands to those who needed me,
I smiled at those who smiled at me,
I kept aloof from those who hated me.
I sit alone at night forlorn for hours,
Gazing at the star lit sky at a stretch,
Hoping for a ray of hope as light,
Expecting an extended hand to reach
Out to me to comfort me,
Give a shoulder for a pep talk to soothe.
Suddenly when I heard my inner voice
Reach out for the best for you are capable,
Reach out for the ultimate for you are supreme,
Reach out for the stars for the sky is the limit,
Reach out unto yourself to face the world boldly,
Nothing must stop you from what you wish to do.
To create a special place for yourself when the stage is all set,
Take the lead and make an indelible mark.
Take the lead and reach out for the sky with STHREEJEEVAN
