The fortitude of fist, to force and fulfill fantasies

That small, cute dream in your miniature brain
And that curious question of years back, reminds again

Those initial few days of confusion and the cries
And those moments of hardship seemed to never die

But like every little thing in life that you have adored
You fell in love with it in no time, in memory to be stored

Year after year, the grind only got intense, not to get over
But you never said no to the trying for challenges, whatsoever

The health issues tried to scare you but only to lose miserably and futile
Your focus and the determination remained steady not being sterile

As the life grew over springs and autumns of different types
You didn’t miss to acquire feat of belts of any colors or stripes

And when the destination seemed so close and to become finally real
Came the evil of the pandemic, with another twist in your tale

Those months away from it and your never-ending prolonged wait
Agonizingly tested your patience and perseverance not to be a bait

It was not only the test of time but the endurance despite of repetition
You got back into the slog like a true warrior’s pride for manifestation

Efforts spent for recalibration and better resilience for a new normal
You took guard, poised for a polished reskilling, to give pandemic a stern denial

Finally, the fate came calling for a show of true grit and test of intentions
Despite the odds, you decided to step up not waiting for other interventions

You delivered a fierce bout with much less to breathe under a mask
And only proved to your own doubt, that nothing could stop the resolve for a task

This was a joy for us to see achieve your first goal and feel your happiness
But for that four year little boy, a true testimony of character and firmness

For others, this was another day and another opportunity to celebrate
But for you, was the foundation of believing in dreams in life and calibrate

May the Almighty give you the similar strength and the spirit of this kind
You may not only set, but reach every goal, to serve the greater mankind…
