Treasure Island

Abdul Wahab


The Song Of Life


Life is a song,
Life is a poem.
Be happy in delirium doom,
Laugh loudly even in gloom.
Life is a sunlight
Life is a cloud,
Hide and seek,
Unbound sailing in the deep.

Life is a sky
- An open mind,
--High and wide,
Profound pleasure even in the uneven glide.


Life is a market,
Some will buy some will sell
Some will lose some will gain.

You may lose today
But tomorrow you may gain
Never permanent are pleasure and pain


If the situations are against or in favour
No matter,
The will be not be the same forever
How hard is the blow!
How tough is to flow!
Even though,
Never, never bent or bow.

    Abdul, life is larger than any one person can phantom. And you've gone to the depth of your being to show us one aspect, as it is revealed to you: giving and taking. The good and bad, happy and sad, etc. Thank you for sharing your revelation with the world, which helps us to understand more of what this thing called life is all about. Good job, my friend. May you continue to share of your heart's riches. (Report) Reply

    If everyone in the world takes life in that sense, we'd all be the perfect picture the heavens thought we'd be when God created us! (Report) Reply

poet Henry Vaughan

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
