I see a solitary ant, carrying a sugar cube huge,
Marching on to its colony, its homely refuge,
Oh this tiny being, what a wonder !
Never does it let out even a whimper.
I see a little sapling with leaves but two,
Fighting its way up, to a world bright and new,
Oh this son of a seed, brave with no fear,
Never do a rustle from the hustle do I hear.
The wind and the waves, riding on time,
Travellers forever with no reason or rhyme,
Oh these vagabonds, to every man’s intrigue,
Never do they speak of a weariness or fatigue.
Spinning and revolving around the sun,
Maybe ever since time had begun,
Mother of seasons, with a tilt, so busy,
The earth doesn’t ever speak of being sunburnt or dizzy.
Never is the sun too hot, or the moon too blue,
Hidden somewhere, there’s a subtle clue.
Look at life and work from another lens,
Let the music to your work be but silence.
Why shout, in stillness should you rejoice,
For in that silence will your work, find its own true voice.
Don’t let work be loud, let it be loved instead,
Toil in silence and have the heart to leave things unsaid.
To foster grace, let that be your purpose sole,
And work shall find harmony with the song of every soul.
