The Best I Could Do

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to save all those dying in the war just sitting on my couch in the dining room; but the best I could do was to sincerely pray to God in my mind; to save the innocent from brutal atrocity and death,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to cognize as to what depths would I strike water beneath the soil; but the best I could do was to tenaciously plough the
same using both my hands; till the time my perspiration yielded those crystalline droplets I was so frantically searching for; to pacify my thirst,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to contemplate upon the exact number of apples hidden within the dense foliage of the gigantic tree; but the best I

and relish,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to envisage the number of humans which the diabolical shark had chewed up alive; but the best I could do was warn as many people as possible whom I encountered on the beach; about the staying away from the perilous sea; and keeping their eyes open and wide for the big fish,

had always dreamt of,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to prognosticate as to who would be the first individual I would confront when commencing the first hour of my morning; but the best thing I could do was greet him with a smile and congenially say Good Morning,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to decipher what exactly the mad man was saying; as he kept opening his mouth without the slightest of sound; but the best I could do was to help him express his ideas better; endeavor to understand the essence of the agony; that he might have been going through,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to predict the exact second of the day; without even looking at my watch; but the best I could do was to gauge the hour
with the rising positions of the Sun & Moon; thereby carry on my activities incessantly without any negligence,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to imagine as to how much cash was stored in the villagers account; but the best I could do was to safeguard it at the
cost of my life; standing tall like a formidable fortress in the path of the evil and satanic eye,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to prudently discern the nature of an individual only a few seconds after I met him; but the best I could do was to
establish an amicable relationship with him over a period of time; accept his pro’s and con’s as a part of erring humanity; and progressing life,

their lives,

I admit that I didn’t have the ability to know whether the milk I was about to gulp had traces of lethal poison in it or not; but the best I could do was to swallow it down my throat with my eyes blindfolded; if someone offered it to me with loads of empathy and love in his heart,

time; but the best I could do was to execute each activity of my life with stupendous fervor;
Try and help as many people as I could in the remaining years of my future set apart by Almighty Lord; and lead life to its fullest possible; every day; every hour; every minute; every second.
