Cadenza

                 Cadenza

And what have I made of life ?
What have I understood if anything at all?
I think therefore I am is just plain wrong,
I “do” therefore I am is much closer to the mark for me;
So what have I made of life ?
What has mine been other than that
which it is and was always going to be,
a Cadenza-
” a technically brilliant sometimes improvised solo passage toward the close of a concerto.”
almost done then ?
soon,
but not just yet

    You are definitely right dear poet! Certainly action speaks louder than mere thoughts…

    Highly philosophical and thought provoking poem which reminds one of the relevance of karma .

    A poignant wistful poem pondering existential questions with an undercurrent almost like that of regret though not quite. If life towards its end flows like a brilliant solo passage of music at the end of a concert , perhaps one can hope for little better on earth . One can perhaps hope for greater rewards in heaven .
