What Is Life, Really?
June 18, 2010
Life is a song of love
Sung by a dove above
Every heart has to sing along with it
Life is a also a sea of sorrow
Filled with tears which we borrow
Every heart has to laugh and go beyond it
Life is a strange feeling
Life is an enormous healing
A broken heart has to hope through it
Life is a vast exile
One after another mile
Every heart has to live through it
When life is disloyal
And pain becomes royal
Don't you fall and quit it
If your own people are against you
And the distant music makes you feel blue
Every heart still has to dance to it
Life is a beautiful smile
Pain's an identity for a while
Give thanks, embrace and love it
Life is our guest
Just here to take some rest
Soon it will take you along with it

I have myself written this poem some days back. I have quite a few friends, some of which have recently been through much pain and hurt in their lives. I try and comfort them. To some, it is helpful, to yet some others, it is not that helpful. Hence I'd written this poem and showed it to them and also published on my blog http://neoncandles.blogspot.com so that they may know that it's life and it will be their own life. So they better live it in a way that can make them feel better instead of regretting it.
