He worked very hard,
All day, every day.
Nose to grindstone.
Shoulder to wheel.
More ground to cover.
Yet more deadlines to meet.
Hailing from a humble background,
But wanting to shine in his field.
Without financial or familial support,
Persistence was his only friend,
His goal, his only guide.
People called him over-ambitious
But he never forgot his late father’s advice:
” Never stop aiming for the stars,
But keep your feet firmly on the ground.”
