Vagaries Of Life

Vagaries Of Life short poem

Uploaded by Ramapriya Nr

Life is like a journey in the train
We board the train all alone

We share different moments with so many
We travel till our destination in their company

We alight leaving behind their memory
some sweeter,some bitter and some mixed

Often we get worried and behave as
if there is nothing left to be relived

The greedy will continue to feel unhappy
in spite of reaching the pinnacle of wealth

The needy will continue to slog and
sees no light even beyond the tunnel

The contended will feel life as routine
and never attempt to scale heights

The mourners will always have a grouse
and never live in peace for no reason

The optimistic will take the failures
as a stepping stone for success

The pessimistic will see failure
even before attempting for success

The turmoil in life does have an expiry date
when one has to leave the world on the allotted date

A wonderful poem on what is life is all about, very wonderfully explained and compared to a train journey, yes all the turmoil in life ends when life itself ends…….nice poem

I kissed the pillows of her cheeks. Covering myself in the blanket of her caress. While here nothing is heavy. Maintaining the balance of smiles in the bed of her arms She doesn’t mind my snore, relaxed in complete comfort.
