Life is like . . .

What is life? Its definition differs from person to person. Probably, for everyone it is the precious Gift of God.


Life is like a blank paper,

We write and rub

Rub and write

On paper.

But we can’t do it

In life.

We write, we write

And we can only write.

God forgot to

Give erasers

And makes life one way.

We can go onwards

And go only further.

He forgets to give

Back gear in life like car.

Life is like a dream

We can only see

And interpret

But can’t make changes in it.

It is pre-planned

That gives only a chance to live.

Life is like a glass of water

When it is full

We fear to drink

When it is half

We wait to fulfil it.

Life is like a beautiful painting

That attracts us,

But hides many type of fear,

When we live

Then only we can experience.

Life is nothing

But depends on our thought.

We can make it beautiful

By our Gratefulness to God,

But we spend whole life

Only complaining Him.

We Don’t enjoy

What we have,

But blames for why not

This thing we have. . .

Always cry on our failures

But don’t have time to

enjoy success.

It can be like heaven

But we make it hell

Through competition.

Life is a precious Gift of Almighty.

So we must appreciate

Each and every moment of life.

Great coaching on how to view life. We can choose to complain about our circumstances or make a decision to move forward with hope. God is a on our side at all times. Lovely thoughts!

Yes ignugent17, repentance is a eraser, through it at least we can realise our fault and would not repeat the same mistake again.

Right SidKemp, I agree forgiveness is the best eraser. Forgive and Forget will be the best therapy for a good and healthy life.

Thank you. Your writing bring awareness of God's most precious gifts. I do think, though, that God gave us an eraser - and it's called Forgiveness.
