In the Search of a Job

In the Search of a Job

by Rizwan Ahmed Memon

Traveling to different cities,
Appearing at different tests and interviews,
A fresh graduate from university--
Tried very hard to get a job.

He studied at the library for hours,
And read the job ads in the newspapers.
Hoping to find vacancies, he turned page after page.
Days went by he kept looking for a job.

Sometimes he passed written tests,
But failed in interviews.
Sometimes his knowledge worked,
But his luck didn’t.

Sometimes his spirit
Struggled and dwindled.
Sometimes he collected himself
And kept searching.

He had a belief
That hard work bears fruit,
That the God’s mill grids slow but sure.
So he tried and tried and tired.
