Life's A Gamble - Go For It!

Life's a journey

A path that is unpredictable
A route which is not easy
And can anytime make u stumble

A person hale and hearty today or now
May be no more tomorrow or the next moment
Dats life! so realistic and sometimes so unrealistic!

A happy go smiling person may probably never return
May be you will never meet him again in your life
Either you would dissolve or he

May be your paths would never again cross in future
This is the bitter truth of life
Life's like a gamble, you have no option but to go for it!

Take risk to survive
If you see the next morning sunshine
You have one more chance for yourself to revive!

    The very lines of AS YOU LIKE IT, have come in my mind- - - - - - - all the world is stage and all the men and women are merely players.Loved this philosophical poem very much. (Report) Reply

    So true Kavya, I liked reading it. Whatever u like, love you don't get and whatever ever u don't want we need bear it through out. Life is a gamble and we all are gamblers. Keep writing, you have that writing skill. Tq. (Report) Reply

    Life being so transcient, nothing is as certain as Death! But we cannot live with that realization all the time! Cherish each morning if we are lucky to see it unfold and make our presence felt through acts of grace that will make ourselves happy and others alike! A very true picture of life! ! (Report) Reply

    Kavya, you have given the darker side of life as you said in the form of a good poem! This is the pessimistic thought you have deployed and as you said the optimistic thought is presented in your poem - LIFE- -!
    Aswath has taken pains to portray his vision in his inimitable way! That too is good ! (Report) Reply
