“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

Life Is..

Life is a mixture of happiness and sorrow,
its right here right now, no tomorrow;
it can become full of pleasure and joy,
if we stop telling a lie.

Life is a hard battle,
which starts from cradle;
which ends in the grave,
who wins it, is titled brave.

Life is just a game,
Which has no particular name;
in which we can win,
if we stop doing sin.

Life is like a leaf,
some are alone, some are in heap;
when it will fall; no one knows,
but when one falls the other one grows.

Life is like a test,
people remember the one who performs best;
no place for the one who will fail,
no matter how much he burnt midnight oil.

Enjoy it before you die,
this is a stage, don’t shy;
complete your wishes before you depart,
for there is no other start.

~Shreya ♥

  16. Shreya,
    Beautiful poem about life. But I am not with you so called telling truth, because I am a human after all not a God.
    Thanks for your nice blog.

  17. Beautiful, Shreya. We all get very distracted by the details of our busy lives and forget to enjoy the moments. Forget to LIVE in that moment. We all stumble in this manner, but the occasional gentle reminder to come back to mindfulness is always welcome. :)
