Life Is - Poem by Joy Shin

Life is a fragile glass
Ready to shatter at any second
Without any warning

Life is an ocean
Unexpected wave coming out and in
Taking the aged soil with it

Life is a mountain
Filled with trees and rocks
Blocking the way to the top

But life is beautiful

With glass glistening over the sunlight
Showing the hidden beauty of it

With a blue wave tossing back far more
Precious than the soil it took before

With fruitful trees providing goods
In a way you haven’t expected

Life is beautiful
