Life – A poem

Life A Poem

 Is the glass half full or is it half empty?
From person to person, the answer will vary
Just so is life and your life’s story
Either it’s very sad or full of glory

Moments are those that glorify your life
Happy or sad or the ones filled with strife
Never does one stay for more than a given time
It’s a cycle that repeats all your life time.

Feel blessed for the good and prepare for the bad
Accept the challenges without feeling sad
Another path will open, if one is closed
Challenges should never be left unprobed

Shades of life are such, they will always change
Sometimes long, sometimes short, will be the range
Those who accept with a smile, will take the crown
One can never attain their goals with a frown

      Thanks Indi. Just reposting my poem which I wrote about a couple of years ago for an IF contest.
      The so called ups and downs will keep happening. But which one does one refer to an up and which down, again depends on how one views the scenario.

      Thanks Rhea. You are right. As life goes on, we wonder why certain things happen. Only after a specific period of time when we look back, we find those things happen to fall in the right places in the right time.
