Hard Work Does Pay Off
Poem by Ms. Sribaghya S, Teacher at Ekya School BTM Layout


A moment of truth and a word of advice from Ms. Sribaghya from Ekya School BTM Layout. It pays to persevere and keep the faith – there is always a silver lining.

Hard work does pay off,
ask me how!
I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off!
Hard work is a gluttonous monster,
for some people look at it as though it’s a gangster.
Ask me how!

I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off.
It might deprive your sleep,
and give you some memories you could keep.
Ask me how!

I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off.
Your favourite movie is on,
but your desk has a pile upon.
Greed tries to make an entrance,
and yet conscience tells you not to be in trance.
Ask me how!

I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off.
A day arrives when your work is revised,
you are in for a day where you’ll be surprised!
As your name lingers in the corridor,
you are uncertain as to why you’re called for!
Ask me how!

I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off.
You enter your senior’s cubicle in fear,
And receive the words of appreciation that you’d longed to hear.
The rush of warm blood inside your body,
Personifies a million cheerleaders cheering you with an Audi.

Ask me how!
I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off.
The moment you step out of the room,
you notice the disappearance of some gloom.
Don’t trust me when I say this?
test it yourself for it’s a sheer bliss.

Ask me how!
I shall tell you now that
hard work does pay off!
