What is Life?


Life's not all about fun and game,
Life's not all about sex and fame,
Life's not all about money and titles,
Life's not sweet like honey and apples,
Life is a pathway in the middle of the highway,
Life is a loan, everyone shall repay,
Life is a gift, something not to re-sell,
Life is a curse, when you don't use it well,
Life is a story, maybe good, maybe tragic,
Life is a fact, it ain't something magic,
Life is unique and death is common,
Life is sometime, then it is gone,
Life is a mystery, science, religion,
Life is a reality, not a fiction,
Life's so fragile, tender and delicate,
Life should not be bent, neither be curved, but should be straight,
For me life is a war, a war you cannot see,
For me life is a score, to earn in high degrees.
To be continued...

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
