She Raised The Bar!

No, you can’t!” they said.

Possible to go ahead?”

You have done it many times before!”

Impossible for you to improve score!”

This time, she raised the bar!

Yet again she came far…

She attained dreams; earned fame!

The next day’s paper had her name!

“YELENA ISINBAYEVA DOES IT AGAIN!”

(“There are no victories without pain”)



This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.

    1. Thanks Bhavya!
      But, the last line is not my original!
      It's from a motivational poem I had read long ago- "DON'T QUIT"- that continues to inspire.
      I love the whole poem, but distinctly remember two lines-
      "There are no Rainbows Without Rain;
      There are no Victories without Pain..."

      I believe- We must never quit and keep on achieving further success that's sure to impress! :)
