Falling! This word has always been used to show something which is negative in its behaviour, something which is degrading, going down, but let me tell you this is the only word which has the most beautiful impact on my entire life.
I can remember the days of my school when due to lack of money, my parents put me in a semi-government Hindi medium school, a shy guy who’d sit next to anyone in the middle or corner row, who had no good image of anything.
Not even in sports, reading a paragraph in an open class, not even in academics, not even in music. I was just a mediocre in everything. A person who didn’t even know how to speak to anyone from English medium students of the same standard. Frightened, and always lacking with confidence.
That was the day and here is today, I’ve changed myself completely from falling from there to here. I worked my ass off to come where I am today, I’ve learnt the depth of English, merely a language but better than those who used to dominate me. I’ve been a good articulator, who can speak and entertain tens and hundreds of people with his confidence and there are so many incidences like those.
The recent one is what I can remember when, in the month of March-2020 I was thrown out of my company from one branch to another due to lack of performance. I was breaking down, falling in place and I thought of quitting. But here’s the catch, by the grace of Krishna, just after one year, in the same month of March-2021, here I am awarded with Number 1 Executive salesperson in the entire organisation.
My struggles have always been my motivators. And I never forget the people who are with me in those difficult times. For me, they mean a lot. Because I surely know that I may end up falling today, but tomorrow I’ll bounce back with double power, and the moment I come back again, I’m always there for my loved ones in all the condition.
In today Prompt #6, “Falling, you’re pressing your fingers against the sky” I’ll be sharing my little poem of how I’d never give up little fallings:
You may see me struggle,
Working on my own,
Putting myself all
It’s easy to stop me,
But you won’t see me fall.
Regardless if I’m capable or not,
I’m gonna show, how to fight till end
I may fall once, but
I’ll stand again tall.
Everyone says life is tough,
I used to believe that too
I was challenged with setbacks
And that’s how I learned what to do.
Time gets hard, people leave you,
Perhaps, you become silent too,
But with the help of self-introspection
You overcome all the breakthrough.
Ever since I’ve started to wear a bigger smile,
Even when I feel as if I want to cry.
I’m going to fight till the end,
Even if I am destined to die.
There will be days, months, and years
Where you’d see me struggle through it all.
You may see me failing, at times,
But you’d never see me lose it all.
