Treasure Island

Somanathan Iyer


Mystery Of Life


Merits of light better understood
If one undergoes plights in darkness
Value of wealth better understood
If one undergoes miseries of poverty
After all this world is a combination
Of miseries and pleasure linked together
Mystery unsolved till date how long each occurs
Predestined are events that occur in life
Efforts for success not every one will make
Not fools all those who remain unsuccessful
Directed by destiny undergoes every life
Fruits of success is a reward for merits in earlier life
Failures and hardships result of misdeeds earlier
Brood never on that happens beyond our control
Live this life in transparency without harming any
May be destiny ushers a next life a better one if there is!

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
