Call life by any name

If you call life Sympathy,

It is helping others in distress

Or at least holding their hands in yours.

If you call life Happiness,

It is feeling happy seeing others succeed in life.

If you call life Love,

It is loving unconditionally

Irrespective of caste or creed.

Life may be called Pity

If tears roll down your cheeks

Seeing the pains of others.

Life may be called Silence

If you do not utter any word

When suffering is inflicted upon you.

Tolerate and life is known as tolerance.

Rise for your rights and life is known as Justice.

Strive for the betterment of society

And life will be known as Compassion.

Work and life turns into Worship,

See all as one and Divinity becomes life’s mission.

See God in man and life will be Humanity.

See God in yourself

And life becomes Bliss.
