Whenever my mind begins to ponder
over this deep, dark secret,
however hard tried, I wonder,
my wisdom fails to get it correct.
O! you wise people of the world
can you lend your wits?
to crack the puzzle which bothers,
though I strive hard to solve it.
What is life? The meaning? The definition?
go on, give yourself a try,
for it still remains a stubborn question
which never fades nor gets dry.
some say, it’s about celebrating each day
some smile and face it as it comes their way.
some stagger and stammer at the sight of perils,
others vile away the moments in nags, jibes and quarrel.
there are warriors, who fight their battle
till their last beat and breathe.
but this world is not devoid of those
who sacrifice their life and embrace death.
Still, life is the same to all of us
whether we wish or not,
with boulders and pits all along the path
where we leap, sprint and trot.
careful, watch every single step,
for we never know what lies next
you miss a beat, alas! you go,
leaving unaccomplished your lone quest.
so what, if you fell,
c'mon you can still stand up,
for failure is not in falling,
but it’s failing to get up.
life to me is just living
and wearing an everlasting smile
for it makes you tough as a wall,
and never lets you be glassy fragile.
Still, you can define it with a difference
if not heartily satisfied.
for it still remains a stubborn question,
no matter how many times tried.
