Motivational Children’s Poem about Positivity, Courage and Right Attitude

Schools ought to motivate their students since motivation is the key to a successful future. It is the technique of facing life positively and dealing with various emotions with courage and the right attitude. Dr Anshu Arora, the writer of ‘COMPtitude’, a series of computer-cum-aptitude book series for classes 1 to 8 and author of two fictions ‘The School Tales’ for school children and ‘Say Bye to Goodbye’ for the young adults describes it in a sweet poem illustrating life in the simple process of churning butter.


I earnestly want to churn
Fresh and sweet-smelling butter
From the free-flowing cream
It is a simple deed indeed
Then, what do I ponder?
Whipping cream with the blender
Sometimes it’s temperature
Sometimes consistency
That gravitates procedure
But butter is my dream
Buried inside the cream
dollops, I wish to skim
It lies at the core
Wanting patience galore
To show and then roar
Cream is concoction
Mix of life’s moments-
Lazy, waste & precious
Butter is our destination
Centrifuged by determination
It’s our ultimate salvation
Excuses forever delay
And efforts eventually pay
As labour toils each day
If there are chunks of butter
they will manifest and glitter
And slowly get better from bitter
You just sail through the tide
Holding time by your side
Keep trust, it may be the last strife
Butter has to coagulate
Buttermilk will separate
That is the final fate
Neither babble nor rattle
Just show your mettle
Make ‘butter’ & win life’s battle
