Life...

  Our zigzag, uncertain life
With imponderables rife,
Needs both pluck and luck
To score a century or a duck!
 
In life, we win some, lose some
It is *kabhi khushi, kabhi gum!
Nothing in life lasts forever,
So, enjoy it now or never!

 
*Urdu/Hindi expression meaning “sometimes happiness, sometimes sorrow”

Comment Thanks my dear Ks - Kulbir and Kingshuk - for liking this one and your generous appreciation. Yes Kingshuk, the value of Khushi becomes more pronounced when in 'Gum'
