Faces Of Life

Faces Of Life short poem

Photo by Eldkvast

Life is tricky
Some feel miserable for unknown reason
While some feel upbeat for no reason

Life is a dancer
It makes you jump in Ecstasy
and it makes you fall in agony

Life is a mystery
You know not when you die
but you are sure you will die

Life is a smile
you smile when you are applauded for brilliance
you also smile when you lose mental balance

Life is tears
tears trickle out when in sorrow
tears also trickle out when over joyed

Life is moody
sad face on disappointment
worried face on agony
happy face in Ecstasy

Life is romantic
when falling in love
while in day dreaming

Only after knowing infinite facets of life …..HE is seen ….
Only after knowing the many …You are known ….
It is emptying after filling that counts …..
I feel so good about you …..
You make voyages …..
You create passages …..

Please accelerate your drive ……
You are the one destined to strive …..
………and go on that side of the hive ……

wonderful poem on the two facets of life, life is a great mystery…….it enfolds so much………who can write such a beautiful poem on life rather than the person who has seen life closely……….. philosophically …..very beautiful poem written in your unique style……..

Life carries on, in all its forms, myriad possibilities, each more wonderful than the other.
