The Lesson Called Life

Life goes on..
Nothing disrupts its flow,
You can not afford to be slow.
Life is like the last bus to our destination,
And we have to catch it ,when it is moving
It’s tricky, its tiring, it is indeed a tough antic to learn
But learning and mastering it is the way, not to be burnt
Not to be burnt at the stake, for being a failure.
Can we afford ever to fail in the exam called life?
The skills that we need is to smile
To smile while facing all the strife.
To pick up the cues ,that life throws at us,
And while balancing all those cues, board this bus.
We have to learn how to choose the precious jewels,
from all the muck, scruff and the grime.
No time to pause, whine and shed our tears,
It’s an ongoing task to face the unknown frontiers,
While dealing with our overwhelming fears.
So, gear up, be decisive, be upfront,
Choose to play and not to rest,
It will give you all that life offers at its best.
