Silent prayer reverberating in mind
Thoughts of near and dear at heart
Intrigued by the mystery of HIS blessings
Longing for the eternal moment of bliss
Life is  a journey  never stands still

Modesty

Mohan was a topper in Medicine and bagged the Gold Medal for his academic achievement. Coming from a poor family, Mohan had to struggle for basic amenities. He never allowed his poverty to come in the way of his achievements.

Overjoyed by his academic pursuits the University offered him a Honorary Chair for Medicine and provided him with the much needed facility for doing his research. Mohan, true to his form, was quick to embark on his projects and made rapid progress.

During one of his routine visits to the University hospital Mohan  was introduced to a person suffering from cancer. He was a very rich Sheik from neighboring country who had come for his treatment to the University Hospital.

Encouraged by the results of his research Mohan began to use the findings in treating the live cases of Cancer at the Hospital. He chose the Sheik for his personal study as his case was the most complicated. As the treatment progressed the Sheik began to show quick improvements.

Soon the lab results performed on him began to show rapid deterioration of cancerous cells and his immunity against infection  improved and  Mohan knew that his efforts have succeeded.

Taking a cue from this success story several cases of such Terminal Cancer were referred to Mohan and he began to save these people from this erstwhile deadly disease. Meanwhile, the Sheik was discharged from the Hospital and offered a personal reward of $100,000 to Mohan as a Gift.

Yearning for a cure to this deadly disease and finding the solution had such an indelible impact on Mohan that he totally dedicated his life for the treatment of such terminal cases at the University. He requested the Sheik to donate his reward to The Hospital instead so that it could alleviate the hardship of patients who could not afford the treatment. Overwhelmed by Mohan's modesty, the Sheik donated an entirely new building complex for the treatment of poor patients at the hospital


CHINA

Characterised by urge to excel
Harnessing its resources very well
Imbibing cultural and traditional values
Natural instinct for hard work
Arise, awake, china is emerging

Pathos

Pangs of Sorrow
Adds to pain
Tough to handle
Hurt it does
One and all
Stay off sins

For Acrostic only

Success

There's no hard and fast maxim
Keep on trying  out till the brim
Never say die its a hard swim
Let your heart zoom! Let your heart zoom!

There are plenty  who got the crown
Learn a few things and  do not frown
After all their blood is not brown
You never groan! You never Groan!

Practice hard work will do the trick
Without a break you got to stick
I am  sure it is bound to click
Go for your pick! Go for your pick!


It is not   getting what you aim
It is just what you have to claim
Go on  do it right and proclaim
You won the game! You won the game!

The MonoTetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme (the lines have the same end rhyme). Each line is tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. The last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. 
Stanza Structure :
Line 1: 8 syllables; A1 
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2 
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3 
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated A4, A4 

I found this beautiful form of poetry in the Blog by Ms.Vibhuti B at
the URL http://klishmaklaver.blogspot.com. I was fascinated by it and 
decided to try my hand at it.
