What’s Your Zenith?

Mahika Chawda


We all run in the same marathon,

But with different strengths and achievements,

We all have different objectives,

But run forward to one another.


We are all in the same pitch,

But with different roles,

We all try to reach one goal,

But the ball of opportunity is passed to those with strength.


We all swim in the same water,

But are capable of different forces,

We all have some hope and belief,

But some thrive ahead because of the power of their dreams.


Reflect on your life and achievements.

What’s your dream?

Everyday, humankind wakes up to be better,

What’s your zenith?
