LIFE


What is life?
I wondered what life was
Never i got a proper answer
I saw a bird feeding it's nestlings
Oh, motherly warmth was the life.
Next day a nestling fell from the tree
Oh, sorrow was the life.
Sunlight with hopes in dawn was the life
Also retired sun in the dusk was the life.
Smiles of victory was the life
Also tears of defeats was the life
A fairyland wood in spring was the life
Also cry of desert for rain was the life
What is life?
I often asked people
Never i got a proper answer
For a poor sweat and blood was the life
For a rich only gold was the life.
For a farmer his soil was the life.
For a cobbler shoes were the life.
For a pessimist failure was the life
For an optimist success was the life
What is life?
I asked the almighty
For him his heaven was the life
Finally i got my answer
Life can't be defined but only experienced.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
