Dignity

Farmers plant rice on their land in the terai area of Nepal’s Bardiye district, a lowland region where most farmers are known grow rice.

An effort to seek the blessing

But never to look down upon oneself.

Any task is a curse

Only when the struggle isn’t true.

A desire to attain success

Is a true blessing

But the herculean aim does not

Have an easy clock that ticks.

The waking spirit

And lively sun

Sets its foot.

Work is worship.

A same aim

Becomes a game of two.

Leaving the sleeping will behind

A glowing attire of glory

Shows a true path.

Few bow down

And not lose their dignity.
