This is Life

My darling friend

This is life

Things will happen

To teach you a worthy lesson.

Never thought it as curse,

Yes sometimes it answers

In sorrow, full of terse

And tense.

But sometimes it gives you

Happiness and a peaceful trance.

Indeed it is easy to die

But more terrible is

Not to live that life.

At one moment life is full of

Obsidian clouds that

Brings storm and strife.

Another moment it’s like rain,

That brings the rainbow bright.

Life is like an Ant,

The Ant falls and descends,

Why does it never gives up,

Again it mounts, and it ascends!

     Many take life for granted my friend,

     But only a few do enjoy and firmly

     do attend!
