950: Life time

If you knew maths, life is like the real line,
Not just infinite but dense and uncountable,
F(x) =1 by x, is a one to one function, but for 0,
So a small interval of (0,1) is as big as (1, infinity)

Studied in RK Mission just three years,
But that’s education of my life-time,
Taught a semester in US, experienced
Loneliness of another life time,

Two decades in a marriage, a life time!
Few friends of 10 years, yet another,
A love lost in just 19 months,
As big as the same life time.

Big or small, each one is a life time,
Is one bigger than the other?
It may seem so to you, maths says otherwise,
You would know when you are wise.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
