Life's a To and Fro Affair


Life's after all
A to and fro affair
Here to there
There to here
This body
Just a carrier.

Life moves
On a circle
Always reaching
Where it starts
End's its start
Death.

Birth to death
A journey in time
It's magical
Death's birth
It starts
All over again.

Lust, greed, and anger
Bring living death
Love, hope, and compassion
Give life a meaning
Let life become a model
For all others to follow.

    Life and death is a never ending cycle just as the earth never
    stops rotating. Some of our actions in life can cause an early death
    as you so aptly brought to life. Anger, lust, and greed can all add to its
    destruction. Love, compassion and hope could only make it better.
    Very excellent write my friend. (Report) Reply

    Between birth and death is a long and windy road fraught with dangers that we have to overcome. A good poem Tirupathi. (Report) Reply

    Yes, Death is a birth and birth a death! Two things that come to man unasked and over which we don't have any control! The message at the end is inspiring! ! (Report) Reply

The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
