LIFE’S DRAMA

 
      Today, I am going to share with the readers the poem which I wrote some years back. Your experience of life may differ from mine but nevertheless, I hope you
I know you would understand and enjoy it.  Here it is:
 

 

LIFE’S DRAMA

 

Thus far have I lived,

Tutored by experience and time;

Knowledge and wisdom have I gathered,

In this short span of sixty years;

Events come and go like changing scenes,

The different roles I portray have been predestined,

Hero or villain or just a supporting star,

The parts are assigned but not the lines,

Nor how the plot progresses;

Rightly or wrongly, I perform my role,

The after effects will then dictate,

How the plot be woven;

Sometimes, helplessly I stand and gaze,

Like an addict in a daze;

There’s linkage in every small subplots

As they unfold in a maze;

On what note does one’s biography end,

Is for others to judge,

The deeds performed with good intention,

May turn sour and cause bad relation,

Age-old wisdom has to accommodate,

The new modern lifestyle fashion;

Each era comes with new ideals

And causes the shifting of paradigms;

Life is so fluid, like changing forms of clouds,

Though the pendulum swing is regular,

Every minute is fleeting past,

Sixty years seem like yesterday,

Experience has this to say:

Appreciate what you have before they pass,

The moment cannot be saved and does not last,

Savour each blessing along the way,

Be happy and gay!

Life’s short but compact,

Learn to live in tact!

    1. Yes, indeed we should be thankful; but we must not lose sight of our ideals and get carried away by material wealth.

      The statue of liberty embodies lofty and high ideals of Man.What is the use if it just stands there and remains a block of plaster of paris!

      Thanks for your comment.
