Set Of Compromises

Set Of Compromises short poem

Photo by h.koppdelaney

I took birth without desire
I paved my way from every fire
What is life, a dream in dreams
Naked fire like fiery beams
Life is nothing but a set of roses
Desperately opens and desperately closes
Through all this I learnt a lot
When to be cold and when to be hot
Don’t give dictation nor take dictation
Follow the book without alteration
With lot many virtues with very many vices
Life is nothing but a set of compromises.
