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 Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
