Everybody Falls.

Updated on April 12, 2018

Everybody falls in life,

falls come in many guises,

there are trips,

and so there are slips,

but not all falls end with rises.

A stumble can lead into a tumble,

a fumble can result into blunder,

drops usually into flops,

collapses end up as prolapses.

Before mothers fall pregnant,

they fall madly in love,

new life within makes them radiant,

but there's always an unexpected shove.

Life isn’t just about winning the race,

it's more about taking part,

but it's often that we fall from grace,

when we lose our heart.

Vertigo can cause you to falter

but then there's another kind of spill,

something's in life you cant alter,

those times when you fall ill.

But there's one fall you'll not arise,

I'm sure it's often been said,

no matter who it is that tries,

the moment you fall dead.

      Well you were extremely lucky! some people are deprived that chance to continue their life so celebrate your life daily because you may not get that chance again. Namaste

      A very humbling poem, indeed. Yet, I shall argue one point, what about jumper cables - they helped me arise again.
