Life must be Lived

"If winter comes, can spring be far behind?"
This famous poetry line is no doubt known.
But you really wish that winter never comes in your life.
But seasons must change.
Life so much depends on this change of seasons.

Patiently one must bear
the ups and downs of life.
The good and the bad of it.
"If wishes had wings!"
That cannot be.
Wishes have to land on the firmament
however high they soar.

If one spends a lot,
in no time he has to be spendthrift.
If one is a miser,
in no time his accumulated wealth will go.
If one has suffered a lot,
rest assured he will be turned to gold.
If one has enjoyed a lot,
he cannot complain,
if he comes to grief.

But it is so difficult to be just a spectator.
One gets involved,
one takes sides.
And then the ups and downs,
good and bad,
destabilisation takes place.
There is no escape
for the life must be lived!

Comment Just being a spectator, it is better to be a partner in life activities whether it is good or bad, joyful or sorrowful to gain experience and become wise to judge matters better and be successful in our acts!

My quote of Tagore on some of your poetry may be relevant to this one also -
"Whatever I got is my undecaying treasure
What I did not, is not great."

I gave the following quote from Tagore, which appears quite relevant to this one also -
"Whatever I have got, is my treasure undecaying,
Whatever I've not, is not great"
