The happy warrior

A group of people who seek happiness .. People who hope to find happiness .. People who try to be constant without being overly happy or sad .. Those who go beyond limits for their own happiness .. Those who sacrifice themselves for others … We fall into any of these long categories

While reading the poem ‘Character of a happy warrior’ by Wordsworth the following lines caught my attention

Looks forward, persevering to the last,
From well to better, daily self-surpast:
Who, whether praise of him must walk the earth
For ever, and to noble deeds give birth,
Or he must fall, to sleep without his fame,
And leave a dead unprofitable name
Finds comfort in himself and in his cause;
And, while the mortal mist is gathering, draws
His breath in confidence of Heaven’s applause:
This is the happy Warrior; this is he
That every man in arms should wish to be.

I made it because I felt it’s worthy enough toling on. Even in the deserted phase,if one could rely upon themselves, I believe they will stand up one day…

Yes I am in the deserted phase

But I can rely me only

Because I know everyone is struggling in one or the other way

I might not be doing all the happy things I used to do

I might not seem smiling as everyone used to see me before

But this is a phase I have to appreciate myself for simply surviving

Be cause this is not new for us

We are all trying to be the ‘ happy warrior’ indeed
