Short Poems on Adversity

shortpoems 

You can thrive
In the face of adversity
If you have ceaseless faith in yourself
And if you are ready to play the role
Of the hero-warrior
At every moment of your life.

by Sri Chinmoy (1)


Behind all shadows of adversity
There is prosperity.
Wait and see!
Beauty's Infinity,
Infinity's Beauty
Will clasp you behind all shadows
Of adversity-night.

by Sri Chinmoy (2)


Adversity may hide
Possibility-buds,
But adversity can never hide
Inevitability-flowers.

by Sri Chinmoy (3)


When adversity challenges you,
Be brave.
Inspire and energise yourself
To go beyond the reach
Of adversity.

by Sri Chinmoy (4)

 

My life,
Nobody forced you to enrol
In the university of adversity.
It is your self-creation.

by Sri Chinmoy (5)


We must endure
Adversity
Bravely and cheerfully.

by Sri Chinmoy (6)
