In the face of impending death,
Truth with all its beautiful colors
Shines in the sky of life
Like a gorgeous rainbow
To captivate our imagination.
So short is this life
And yet, we strive tirelessly
To make it so long.
We are great connoisseurs of wines,
Of eclectic tastes, be it food or fashion,
Yet, we are so ignorant
About the transience of human life.
The insensitivity of man when it comes
To easing the misery of others
Is sprouting like mushrooms.
Our complacency, our inability to learn
From the benefits of failure,
Our attachment to fun and frolic,
The pride that we take
In glitz and glamour,
Are weakening our much desired efforts
In making love and peace as waterfronts.
There is an expiry date
For leading such a trend of life.
What a pathetic situation!
When will we realize that
The greatest drunkenness is found in peace
And the greatest peace is found in love.
Appreciate this journeying called life.
Learn to live and to love,
Learn to love and to live.
