Inspirational Poem | Is This Life?
Life is beautiful;
That is what wise men used to say.
Despite the uncertainty that it brings,
A glimpse of hope is still always there each day.
But sometimes, I often wonder;
How is life treating me?
If it is true that it is in the absurdity
that we find our life's meaning;
Hope soon in this journey,
I will be able to uncover pieces of it.
I believe in that greater reality.
That is why, though life is quite harsh upon me;
I need not worry that much,
Because I know that life is still beautiful;
Albeit, broken dreams and seeing things happened unlikely the way I wanted it to be.
Is this life?
Perhaps, I may say;
And facing it bravely is the best thing,
That could ever turn my life to be.

About This Poem
This poem is about viewing life in a different way which is optimistically oriented. Knowing how difficult life is; it is best to broaden one's horizon and dwell on the brighter side. I wrote this one way back in my adolescent years; wherein like a typical teenager, I have been experiencing storms and stresses. But still, I was convinced that life is indeed beautiful!
