“One is always nearer by not keeping still.” – Thom Gunn.


You’re nearer your goal; just keep on walking towards it, never stand still.
though the climb is difficult but keep going, unless you belong to the foot of a hill.


Don’t keep still and dry up like the stagnant pond,
Keep moving, keep pushing, keep ploughing on,


the journey is intimidating for the eyes
but the legs that keep moving forward cross miles to collect the prize.
