Poem: Attitude towards Life

Oh! Almighty!
Oh! Almighty!

We all are passengers…

walking on the different

roads of life.

Quarrelling for three things-

Money, Land and Wife.

Why are we stepping in this strife?

Is this a life?

Anger, evil and ego live within us.

Yet, I don’t know why it does.

Perhaps, we forget to kill these bugs.

Telling lie is habitual in all of us…

Fear! Fear! Fear!

Almighty is watching us.

We are stepping everyday in this

strife!

Hurting others is now called a life...

Our blunt tongues are sharper than a knife!

Is this a life?

No! No! No!

This is not a life… this is not a life!

Life is to live for others.

Be generous, caring and full of love.

That’s why I say-

Love begets love.

To make this world a beautiful heaven,

Forgiveness and non-violence should be our weapon.

And last but not the least…

Love is a good medicine to defeat in strife,

We humans then say-

That is a life... that is a life!

This is a great poem. It makes me think of Gandhi if he lived to see today. He wouldn’t be proud of where we're at now, but he'd be proud of this. You're one of the few, Surabhi Kaura, that listen to God, without revising the words to fit greed. Thanks for sharing these thoughts with us :)

Great job on this Hub! Life is all what we make it and Yes, you are right. Only if all of us in this world could live and love each other. This world would be a much better place to live in.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Good work Surabhi, a good little preaching I should say, in a nice way. Somethings a lot of people have forgotten.. 'get what you want at any cost' is the gospel preached today. I am glad you wrote this as a reminder . Best wishes !!!
