King Robert And The Spider.



And now
When all is done, there is nothing to say
You have gone and so effortlessly
You have won, you can go ahead tell them

Tell them all I know now
Shout it from the roof tops
Write it on the sky line
All we had is gone now

Tell them I was happy
And my heart is broken
All my scars are open
Tell them what I hoped would be impossible,

-Impossible by James Arthur

Hello. Sarah Rashid here. I write poems and all that comes to my mind in this blog of mine, in case you people forgot. I won’t blame anyone who did though, because it’s been 17 days since I blogged. I honestly missed writing and you could probably see it the way I am blabbering right now so without any further delay let’s start on today’s topic.

I remember that when I was in elementary school, we read this really inspiring story. I usually don’t remember stuff that old but that story has just help me fight through so much in my life I can’t help but recall it whenever it’s neccessary. The story is really famous so I am sure many of you would be aware of it. I think it’s called ‘KING ROBERT AND THE SPIDER’. 

The story is about the king of Scotland as far as I can remember. He and his army were once defeated in a battle. The king took shelter in a cave to save his life. He was feeling really dejected about losing the battle when he saw a spider trying to weave it’s web. Every time the spider would try to make its way up, it would fall down, the spider kept going up and then slipping down, it kept trying, and finally after a lot of tries, it finally completed the web. As King Robert observed all this, he realized how a small spider had tought him such a big lesson. He had failed once only because he just tried once. So finally knowing what to do, Robert went out and gathered all the soldiers who had survived. He went to the battle again and lost again, he went again and lost and so it went on until he finally won. And that day, he learned the most precious lesson of his life, ‘If you fail at the first attempt, try try and try again’.

And this why I love this story so much. I don’t care if it’s true or not. It is just so inspiring I don’t know how can anyone not take a lesson from it. I remember this amazing line from a Paulo Coelho book, ‘Only he who gives up is defeated, Everyone else is victorious’ – The Manuscript Found In Accra ( I L.O.V.E THAT BOOK!)

So, fellow bloggers, if you try and try and try, again and again, you do succeed at the end. I really want to know if you people have any such experiences and stories like King Robert’s, if so, please please C.O.M.M.E.N.T!!!

– Wish you people have a lot of fun in the halloween holidays, (if you guys get any).

-Hope you all had a great weekend.

-Be nice, do good.

-Peace to you all!

-Sarah Rashid 🙂

  1. thanks for following my blog. I liked this post because you shared your thoughts about the spider and why you liked the story. We all need to keep trying. Most of us are facing battles of some kind. I hope you will write more in 2017 and find a method of reminding yourself so you don’t miss too many days. I used to put a star on my calendar every day I exercised. If the calendar didn’t have a star on it for a few days, I would notice and feel better after I earned another star. All the best of success to you in 2017.
