What is Life About
by Shobha Ramesh Bookmark and Share
  What am I seeing?
A small boy looking at me,
With glasses upside down
perched on his nose beneath.

Don't measure him by his size
For he can teach us a lot
and make us feel like a mice
How nice! How nice!
He says it all with his eyes.

He teaches you what Life is about
You don't have to fret & shout
For he represents the future
Where man can even learn from Nature
To that extent he is very mature.

He says…

What is Life about?
We often cry & shout
Full of ups and downs
Which make us frown
Like waves they come and go
They never listen even if we say 'No!'

What is Life about?
Like a kettle and a spout
We pour out our grieves and sorrows
But we must never forget
That there is a tomorrow.

What is Life about?
A sunrise and a sunset
These follow each other
No matter what the weather
It's all about a circle
Wherever we end
We begin again.

What is Life about?
A cup and a saucer
They always be together
For if they are separated
The meaning of life gets evaporated.

What is Life about?
A rose and a thorn
To reach something beautiful
We must first learn to be dutiful
To revise our lessons on values
To practice what we preach
OR else lie down on the ground
like a rotten peach.

Life never stops
It moves about quite fast
There is no time to stand and stare
No time to look at the mirror and glare
For life is what we make it
So, don't give up, instead shape it
To the best of your advantage
Or unto death you will be bandaged.

Wake Up! Try again
Do not moan and say "It is a pain"
Put on your boots and run & run
Have lots of fun
For time is passing
It will never come chasing
Hold it in your hands
And shake that magical wand
Make most of it,
Yes, Do it! , Do It!
