Life is Beautiful

Life is beautiful where there is comprehension,

Where there is compassion,

Equity and justice,

Love and peace.


With doses of patience,

And much tolerance,

Life can be made bearable,

Nay beautiful.


Stunning can be life, like a lotus plant blooming

Even in muck, with life dazzling,

With allowances made regularly,

To inconsiderate, ruthless people.


Energy sapped by life sucking situations,

Can be replenished through meditation,

Resilience, and fervent prayer

Yes, complete surrender to the Lord, our Saviour.


Self-love is a must to supply continually,

For oneself, moments of respite constantly,

Either through exercise or a walk regularly,

To keep boosted recurrently.


Life is beautiful if we try to find the beauty,

 By doses of positivity.
