What is our duty in life, I wondered

Could not decide, a lot I pondered

             Babies are born in situations widely apart

             Many become adults, though miles depart

Simplest acts, but are easy to perform

Duty is a routine, done daily, no harm

              Rare difficult acts done,  too are facts

              Life is made of little smiles, kind acts

Some are fighters, duty bound, to injure others

Doctors taught, treat people, whatever colors

            Butchers kill animal to be served in diet

           Non vegetarian diet, served with delight

Greatest the difficulty, greatest is duty

Acts done with a sense are life’s beauty

          Great sacrifices are rare but require courage

          Sometimes are the only ways, no discourage

The act should help people on this earth fully

Duty is what we have learnt, done harmlessly

    Striving for excellence in performing duty,you will end up with a much better result than you would if you were striving for perfection.
