Life

| November 30, 2013 | 10 Comments

For everything we do in life there need not be a reason
while most are planned, some just happen and some by season

That which happens in life is real joy or pain
and what is assumed may either be a loss or gain

We enjoy the journey with family and comrades
while most are poor, some rich and few like Bill Gates

In pursuit of wealth, fame, love and worldly pleasures
while most are busy, some idle and few seek god’s treasures

Day in day out opportunities knock on the door
and those with perception benefit more and more

For centuries mankind has witnessed myriad tragedies
while most are man-made, some are natural and few maladies

Misuse of time, barriers of communication and irresponsibility
are the core of all human suffering and disability

The best is one who has love for his fellow beings
and the worst is one who nurtures hatred towards human beings

Life is a journey that is full of fascination
while most continue, some cease and few reach their destination

This wonderful journey of human era
is just like the box of Pandora.
