Spice Of Life - Poem by Kavya ...

Life is beautiful
Yes! its colorful
The value of which unfortunately
is best judged by only a handful!

Ask the value of life to an ill patient
Who is counting his days over a span
Who is nearing death
Who is not able to enjoy life like others can!

Ask the value of life to a person who's blind
Who is craving to see things around
Who is able to feel everything
But not able to enjoy the joy in life that surround!

Ask the value of life to a caged bird or animal
Who is longing to have freedom
To wander freely like other animals
But unable to, due to cruel act of some!

Ask the value of a life to a tree or a plant or a flower
That is soon to get axed or cut
Who has the desire to live
Who can't express its feelings but!

The best judges of life are those
Who are not able to live life though alive
The desire remains unfulfilled
The crave remains within to survive!

Today, we who are able to enjoy the bliss of life
Crib on petty things and make our mind vicious
Ain't we all blessed to be able to Live Life
As every moment of it is so Precious!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

These things came to my mind seeing the condition of a person whom I know, who is suffering from cancer and struggling for her life, counting her last days. She is a vibrant and young lady but fate has meted out this cruelty, hence this poem.

    We cannot call back yesterday or bid time return! So cherish every moment of life when we can while those who are deprived of many things, pine for what we are abundantly blessed with! A great write, Kavya! ! (Report) Reply

    True. Every moment is precious and to be lived to the fullest. Those who mull over silly things, have a lot to understand from the surroundings of the people who cannot live upto their dreams. A wonderful write akka! (Report) Reply
