I am an Indonesian student and sure that Steve has accomplished the mission in his life. One lesson I have learned from him that it is not the length of our life that matters but how we can make the most of our short life that is important. So, in addition to finding what and how we can live longer, we have to keep learning about how to make our life meaningful
he is universal Dictionary any one use any one can use it!
On Steve Jobs – A Tribute
He thought different and came up with products we desire
He lived a life that inspires
An abandoned child who had dreams
Not just wanting to play and have ice creams
A determined person with brain and heart
Of which he followed and developed into an art
Treasured his family members like oasis in arid land
For he knew grass could not be grown on dehydrated sand
He lived his each single day like it was his last
Dared to enter space with no man there in the past
The space now attracts millions of Applenite
Who consume billions of billion bytes
Obstacles emerged on life’s path he vowed to clear
With his spiritual tool one of the world’s sharpest spear
Pierced through complacency
Perforated all things perfunctory
Stayed hungry as the stomach of knowledge would never be full
Stayed foolish as seeds of success could well be sowed without a calculated pull
New waves wash away the old
Making room for the young and bold
Will the young have the sharp spears of their own
Barring complacency perfunctory evils to roam
Will they have the righteous and inspired hearts
Entering new space that shines with humanity and glory and will never be dark
The world is in no shortage of the young and smart
Possessing courage and determination to go into new space’s core part
Opportunities are for the insightful and bold
They vanish into thin air for the lazy and slow
Happiness is to tap and achieve full potential
Without losing sight on loving one’s family and real friends on the go
So much so
There is no regret when you in turn become the old
Such profound, fiercely truthful–yet soulful and touching description of an 'other worldly' magician who walked (and graced) the earth as a visionary with a scientific edge! How deeply moving to realize that there is a tiny spark of this visionary – Steve Jobs – inside each one of us ... alas lying dormant & sadly unrecognized by most of us... Thanks for this beautiful tribute to Steve Jobs – – and all the readers!
