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

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
