THE POEM "THE DELAYS'S STRIKE" IS A LIFE POEM OF HOPE AND COURAGE. IT IS CHATTING ABOUT THE DISCOURAGEMENT, THE ANXIETY AND THE DISAPPOINTMENT THAT COMES WITH THE DELAY IN MAN'S AMBITION TO ARCHIVE
SUCCESS IN ALL THEIR DEALINGS. THE THEME OF THE POEM IS PRACTICALLY ; COURAGE, DISAPPOINTMENT, DEPRESSION AND THE REWARD FOR THE VIRTUE OF ENDURING DELAY. THERE ARE TWO INSTANCES WHERE SIMILE WERE
USED TO IDENTIFY WHAT DELAY IS LIKE IN THE POEM, LINE THREE OF STANZA ONE AND LINE TWO OF STANZA TWO. THE POEM WAS MORE OF COUPLET, THE SAME LENGTH AND RHYME, THERE IS ALSO USAGE OF METAPHOR
ESPECIALLY THE LINE THREE OF THE LAST STANZA AND SO ON. MEANWHILE, ONLY COURAGEOUS ANG THE GREAT ONCE THAT CAN ENJOY THE FULFILLMENT OF THEIR DREAMS.......


 

Have you had a dream?

The long time, so dim,

Like a coming shadow of eternity

You ought to commit to memory,

 

It is a trial, the delay,

Like a gigantic pebble on the high way

It is a test of courage, knowledge 

But seems to have set you on a voyage

 

Unaccomplished mission

You shall bear in mind a great vision

Stand by the confidence of the dream

Surely, will not take long to redeem

 

It’s more than a responsibility

Its courage wisdom and capacity

It’s not an uncommon attribute with Great entities

Waiting and preparing for the opportunities

 

 Only the executor, the creator Knows how soon

 It might take no much longer, could be half-noon

I will always remember If I do don’t forget

I will not forget, for I remember to get.

 

Not common to escape the anxiety of delay

The foundation of much success to stay

It courses deformity and depression

Like Discouragement sat on man’s ambition

 

The goal that was once set with affection

 Bearing no fruit could lay infection

All through the heart of man

No strict omission, either man or woman

 

 Equally knows no boundary

As the savior on the cross of cavalry

Consider not to fail the trial courage,

To be set free from bondage.

 

Be strong not to miss it

Though time passed, you shall take it

Delay could be worse than a barrier,

But delay is never a denier.
