Life is Divine , a canvas so very sacred
What a wonderful gift from God?
Only ,If we let go of it ,Life becomes so serene and pure
Transparent and Crystal clear like sparkling water. .1.
I wonder, has it remained a gift from GOD?
Alas , For many life become a nightmare
For some it is a long journey of joy and pleasure
Choice Lies within us if handled with care. .2.
No doubt life is not bed of beautiful roses
But surely it is not only painful thorns either
Poses challenges to test ones’ steely nerve
If found wanting Complexities and difficulties thrive .3.
Our follies and mistakes only make life one of grief
Difficult and filled with unnecessary strife
Tests and Tribulations ,pain and perplexities confront
Make it unbearable endlessly every instant. .4.
Why Can’t we make life a simpler affair?
Stop carrying our baggage of woes and worries
Shed our Ego and Anger and be compassionate
Forget and forgive lapses of friends and foes alike. .5.
Empathise with others’ griefs ,sorrows and setbacks
Extend a helping hand to unburden their woes and pains
Experience a sense of fulfilment and content
Oh suddenly life looks less knotted but more gifted. .6.
Let us live our life as a journey of purpose
Full of compassion and selfless sacrifice
Make it purposeful and meaningfully significant
Live every second of it and enjoy it as
Gods’ wonderful gift. .7.
