MAINTAINING SUCCESS

To go high is one thing,
to stay high is another.
A plane in auto might fly,
but with no pilot, t'will crash.

Our moves must be always
checked,
else, we end up in life game,
checkmated!

Discipline is a mark
of high flyers,
without which you end up
as a night crawler.

Excesses and extremes, we
must avoid,
if we'ld run the race and get
the award.

"How does this benefit us?",
we must ask,
considering every step, before
we act.

" All things are expedient,
Yes!;
but not all things are gainful",
he said.

Self control - the ability
is called.
Temperance, Moderation;
the call.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
