Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Life of a soldier

We are the soldiers,
Born to die
We are the soldiers,
Brave and strong
Fight for our country in winds and storms.
We are the soldiers,
Giving country a new scope.
We are the soldiers
Making you all the hope.
We are the soldiers
Sacrificing our life without
thinking about our child and wife.
We are the soldiers,
Ready to protect our country
till I breathe my last.
We take pledge to protect my
Sisters and brother no matter what caste.
In nutshell, a soldier wants to say
That if I die in a warzone,
Wrap me in tricolor
And send me home.
And tell my mom
I did my best,
Tell my countrymen
I passed the test.

If life is sorrow , overcome it.
If it is a struggle, accept it.
And it be a tragedy, face it.
And if on the other hand it is a song ,sing it.
If it is a game play it.
And if it is beautiful, worship it.

Make your own way
through the darkest bay
shine the light of love
to fly like a soulful dove.
People come and go
what remains is the effort you owe
your every deed is not a sin
because sins are important for a new chapter to begin
Do perfect.. think perfect
God will take your test
because you are meant to be the best
Every mistake is counted
so fly if you are bounded
never let anyone take the pen
write your own story and
never let it bend
