“Oh, The Places You’ll Go” recommended by Mr. Anubhav Raj Shekhar

Oh, The Places You’ll Go

– Dr Seuss

 

Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?

How much can you lose? How much can you win?

 

And IF you go in, should you turn left or right…

or right-and-three-quarters? Or, maybe, not quite?

Or go around back and sneak in from behind?

Simple it’s not, I’m afraid you will find,

for a mind-maker-upper to make up his mind.

 

You can get so confused

that you’ll start in to race

down long wiggled roads at a break-necking pace

and grind on for miles cross weirdish wild space,

headed, I fear, toward a most useless place.

The Waiting Place…

 

…for people just waiting.

Waiting for a train to go

or a bus to come, or a plane to go

or the mail to come, or the rain to go

or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow

or the waiting around for a Yes or No

or waiting for their hair to grow.

Everyone is just waiting.

 

Waiting for the fish to bite

or waiting for the wind to fly a kite

or waiting around for Friday night

or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break

or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants

or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.

Everyone is just waiting.

 

NO!

That’s not for you!

 

Somehow you’ll escape

all that waiting and staying

You’ll find the bright places

where Boom Bands are playing.

 

With banner flip-flapping,

once more you’ll ride high!

Ready for anything under the sky.

Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

 

Oh, the places you’ll go! There is fun to be done!

There are points to be scored. There are games to be won.

And the magical things you can do with that ball

will make you the winning-est winner of all.

Fame! You’ll be as famous as famous can be,

with the whole wide world watching you win on TV.

 

Except when they don’t

Because, sometimes they won’t.

 

I’m afraid that some times

you’ll play lonely games too.

Games you can’t win

’cause you’ll play against you.

 

All Alone!

Whether you like it or not,

Alone will be something

you’ll be quite a lot.

 

And when you’re alone, there’s a very good chance

you’ll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.

There are some, down the road between hither and yon,

that can scare you so much you won’t want to go on.

 

But on you will go

though the weather be foul.

On you will go

though your enemies prowl.

On you will go

though the Hakken-Kraks howl.

Onward up many

a frightening creek,

though your arms may get sore

and your sneakers may leak.

 

On and on you will hike,

And I know you’ll hike far

and face up to your problems

whatever they are.

 

You’ll get mixed up, of course,

as you already know.

You’ll get mixed up

with many strange birds as you go.

So be sure when you step.

Step with care and great tact

and remember that Life’s

a Great Balancing Act.

Just never foget to be dexterous and deft.

And never mix up your right foot with your left.

 

And will you succeed?

Yes! You will, indeed!
