My most favourite .... :)
My most favourite poem
This poem was especially written to be submitted as one of my assessments (literature subject if i'm not mistaken) during Asasi TESL program. We worked in pairs and Sakinah was paired with me :)
Although it was not as good as others', 'The Ugly Ducling' was my motivation during Asasi years. To me, this short poem is very close to my heart. I can even imagine myself being the poor duckling. A naive person who has to put a lot of effort to find her true destiny.
Yes, I realised that I have to work hard to achieve all my goals..in life and hereafter.
The Ugly Duckling
Hatched from an egg was a darling duckling But he was different from all his siblings So they called him the ugly duckling What he does wrong, he was wondering Poor, little darling duckling!
Hideously proportioned, the Spanish duck said, How little duckling’s heart went to shreds Waves of sadness swamped his heart He cried and cried and cried out loud “Oh, why was I different from the lot!”
With feeble wings flapping hard With faith and hope soaring high Flying high above the sky To find what’s in his store of destiny To find a place where he belonged A place that he could call home.
Threatened by the hunters The ugly duckling fled for his life He needed to get away to survive Oppressed by the tom cat and the hen The poor duckling struggled to make his stand With the perseverance of the patient mountain He put his all to find his gain.
As despair threatened to take its hold Suddenly hope came gliding in a miraculous wonder The ugly duckling then discovered A beautiful swan he had turned into. Joy sparkled in his heart, Not pride but his thankfulness that went out At last, he had finally found his true destiny.
