SKILL
Time
The Time never stops
Nor does it wait
Thus it has second
Minutes and dates
Whole world is on the
Balance of Time
If you miss or waste time,
It is a big crime
Remember this ever,
Forget this never
Past is history
Future is mystery
The value of Time
Is uncountable
The Time had variation
Never ever it is stable
For heaven sake
Don't leave your Time behind
Otherwise Time will be cruel
Not kind
Jaswant Singh/X/RH

Only A Dad
Only a dad, with a tired face.
Coming home from the daily race.

Bringing little of gold or fame,
To show how well he has played the game,
But glad in his heart that his own rejoice
To see him come, and to hear his voice.

Only a dad, with a brood of four,
One of ten million men or more.
Padding along in the daily strife,
Bearing the whips and the scorns of life,
With never whimper of pain or hate,
For the sake of these who at home await.

Only a dad, neither rich nor proud,
Merely one of the surging crowd
Toiling, striving from day to day,
Facing whatever may come his way,
Silent whenever the harsh condemn,
And bearing it all for the love of them.

Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small,
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him
This is the line that for him I pen,
Only a dad, but the best of men.
