Life Is Not...


Life is not Facebook that can accommodate 5000 friends
Life is not Google that can search sites to questions you are seeking with
Life is more than your notebook, you PC or the internet
Life is not the phone, the tablet or any modern gadget
And life is not the noise, the song, or the music being played

Life is more than the fast food chain that can give your order instantly
Satiate your hunger, your delight and your cravings.
Life is more than the supermarket or the neighborhood grocery.
Life is more than the physical foods or the clothes or any raiment
There’s more to life than all these things!

Life is not the can of soda that can quench your thirst
Life is not the cigarette which you presume can relieve your stress
Life is not the beer that gives a minute of forgetfulness
Life is not the ashtray or the garbage where you dump your waste
Life is more than merry making, earthly pleasure, or worldly happiness

Life is not the chocolates, cup of coffee or a mug of tea
Life is more than the jewelries or your accessories
Life is not a toilet where you visit to defecate
Life is more than the bar you go to escape life’s regrets
and life is not the pill that frees you for an hour of anxieties.

Life is not the house, the car, the money or the vacation!
Life is not the party, the extravagance, and the frivolities
So don’t be in despair you cannot get all of these or these were taken away
Don’t be contemptuous to your dear ones if they cannot give you these
There’s more to life than all of these

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
