(BBB) Uphill and downhill through life
Take life for an escalator
Go both through its ups and downs
Ride it like on an elevator
Expect both smiles and frowns.
Take life for a suspense novel
you and I unaware what the next day will hold
Meditate and muse, or this book of life just peruse
Pore over it to watch life's mysteries unfold.
Take life for the open sea
But pray drown not yourself in it
lest you lose sight of God's shore
and thereby lose all spiritual wit.
Take life for a candle
let its glow illumine others too
and in each and every of its flicker
Try finding a hint or clue
Each soul's life unique as mazes of one's thumbprint
And usually for many life's quite an uphill battle
At times sweet as molasses, at times bitter as mint
and life's roller coaster shakes you like a rattle.
Life tis like the rise and fall of notes
Consoling to find people in the same boats
Ah on life you can find a zillion quotes.
Thus ponder over your life and reflect
how good you've been to it
and not just how it's been treating you
Veer around the pit, and keep your path lit
for darkness of the soul is for you unfit.
