Do you continue to do your best,
though you know for sure
nothing is in your hand?

Do you keep a smile on your face,
not knowing whether success or failure
is coming your way?

Do you prepare to loose
or focus steadfastly on hope;
eliminating all else?

Do you surrender to a higher power?
Ponder if you will have the strength
to accept your fate?

You know for certain
the coin has been tossed,
It can fall either way.

Why not smile?
Why not hope?
Why not do?
Why not believe?
Doesn’t matter anyway.

    That’s what superheroes are supposed to do, right? So anyone going through what you wrote is nothing short of a superhero.

      Really? Thought it was what everyday normal people go through.

        I compared ordinary people who keep pushing forward inspite of the setbacks to superheroes.

    How very optimistic this poem is. ‘The coin has been tossed, it can fall any way’ – I love that line.

      Thanks Tulika. It was very apt for what I was going through then, somethings are not in our control.

    It probably doesn’t hurt to keep the smile on one’s face if one can.
