Journey Of Life


The moment after birth starts the journey of life
Everyone has a road in tune with their deeds
An engineer with no par in excellence
God laid our roads marking our joys and jolts
With so many intersects and zigzags
We come across many a relations
We come across many an acquaintances
Some feel it smooth, some feel it hard
Some feel it rosy, some feel it thorny
Some reaching zenith others diving to peril
Some race along, some walk along
Some limp along some pushed aside
Life is a journey with lot of uncertainties
We walk along with some, we race ahead of some
We trail behind of some we wail because of some
short or long certain is the journey
the end is alone, always alone, joined by none

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
