A Life ‘well- Spent’

A Life well  Spent short poem

Uploaded by Dr. Disha Khanna

Dusk to dawn
Life goes on.

Life is a daily battle
We must face without a rattle.

Be strong
For life is long.

A life of length
Needs courage and strength.

Life is fun
When we act like one.

Life at its best
Is a survival test.

Between the body and the soul
Life is made whole.

Life we must tailor
For both success and failure.

Not a minute must be wasted
If life is to be tasted.

Rich is the man
With a healthy life span.

Let me make it plain
Life is about ‘gain without pain’.

Wish you all the best
In life’s every quest!

I liked this very much. Each stanza could be a motivation card to be posted on your wall at home to remind you what life is about. But to be honest, the last two stanzas’ sort of threw me off. Perhaps when I read it again tomorrow I will see it differently.
