Surge to Glory

I wrote the first snippet (Quest for Glory) for a small gift card competition at a fair in 1999. Expanded upon the lines last month with the poem below (Surge to Glory). Please leave a comment…

Quest for Glory

For Furs and Gowns and Cloaks and Tippets,

For Glory the world has so few tickets,

But like an Eagle up to the sky,

I’ll fill my flight before I die.

– Adi Singla (Fall ’99)

Full poem (Surge to Glory) is below-

Surge to Glory 

For Furs and Gowns and Cloaks and Tippets,

For Glory the world has so few tickets,

        When Eyes are set on a Goal so high,

        I will need to give it a second try.

 

The Rocks, the Dirt, the Blood, the Gore,

The walks so long, the Feet go sore.

I am left alone in the Sun to fry,

My Soul is crushed by friends so sly.

 

The Waves, the Surf, the Rise, the Surge

After every rout, a Phoenix I’ll emerge.

And like an Eagle up to the sky,

I’ll fill my flight before I die.

– Adi Singla (27 Mar ’14)
