A Thorny Clamber
by Pravin Gupta
Bookmark and Share
  Life is nothing but a thorny clamber,
only dolts think it’s a rosy dream !
but it can look like beads of amber,
if filled with hope and made to gleam.

learn as much from sorrow as from joy,
as much from health as from illness !
sufferings are nothing but God's ploy,
to help us mark warmth from chillness.

winds are blowing so vehemently,
their direction can not be altered !
still one can adjust the sails gently,
and reach the goal safe and secured.

when sun is bright and shining,
everyone sparkles with liveliness !
across dark clouds finds silver lining,
who longs for inner light in loneliness.

dreams, one who looks outside,
awakens, one who looks inside !
expand your vision far and wide,
fight hardships and turn the tide.

men fail during course of their lives,
we certainly haven't attained perfection !
praiseworthy is one who still strives,
without fearing failure and dejection.

life should not be measured,
by number of breaths, one takes !
but by moments that can be treasured,
and promises to posterity, one makes.

flowers need sunshine to bloom,
humanity needs smiles to thrive !
amid travails of existence and gloom,
keep the faith in God, always alive.
