Essence of Life

Essence of Life short poem

(Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.
Napoleon Hill)

For him the moments in life appeared to standstill,
everything seemed happy and went according to his will.
There was beauty and joy
a shine on the face like a lighted toy!
There was every reason to rejoice,
to feel good and to feel nice.
There was enthusiasm in air,
it was pleasant everywhere.
Life was captivating to see,
for having found someone like thee!
It was attractive and glossy,
and anyone could fancy.
But then she came like a breeze,
and went away with ease.
He felt so dejected and sad,
felt life was cruel and bad.
He understood life isn’t so easy and nice,
Not all dreams and desires will realize.
You never know what’s in store for now,
with only hard blows can we see a diamond glow.
Life is like a mirage of illusions,
you are caught in fix of delusions.
But after a while we come out of wrong notions,
and life teaches us its lessons!
Its essence is to overcome today’s sorrow,
so that we can have a better tomorrow!!
