The Poem Of La Mancha

Last Sunday I had regular phone call with my family members. During that conversation my sister said that she had posted some interesting youtube link on my orkut scrapbook and I should just see it. I checked it and it was marvelous speech by Vishwas Nagare Patil (Senior police officer). It was inspirational speech for all young people learning at Shardanagar during one of their function. But I found that this speech is beyond age and almost everyone can learn something from it.

If you understand Marathi, Its must watch video for you:

In his speech he mentioned one poem "The Poem Of La Mancha" (Impossible Dream). I just loved the kind of optimism, will power and courage the poet is talking about. Though poets talk of Impossible dream, he wants to convey message as nothing is impossible as long as you think I am possible. Seriously yaar... "Where there is a will, there is a way..!!!" I am really influened by this poem and while listening it, I just went into deep introspection. More I realized it, more I like it.

I think even my friends will like it and it will be helpful for them as well. But to be frank after reading this peom if you have "ah... effect" on your mind then only you will be in position to appreciate it.

The Poem Of La Mancha
To dream the impossible dream,
To fight the unbeatable foe,
To bear with unbearable sorrow,
To run where the brave dare not go.

To right the unrightable wrong,
To love pure and chaste from afar,
To try when your arms are too weary,
To reach the unreachable star.

This is my quest,
To follow that star,
No matter how hopeless,
No matter how far.

To fight for the right,
Without question or pause,
To be willing to march into Hell,
For a heavenly cause.

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star.

- by "Joe Darion".
