A Chance at Hand


A certain thing in
Life is death
One goes the way
One comes in.

All struggles happen
In the brief span
Between birth and death
We call this life.

We've a chance at hand
To live this life
And give our all
To make it interesting.

    If I say nicely penned, beautiful rhymes or any metaphor on your that may not dignify bcoz you are self a great poet and writer rather I may praise your imagination. so far imagination concern more with any poet than any other aspects such as skill of writing, uses of words etc.
    In the short poem you have depicted the whole phenomenon of life from birth to death. Thank you so much sir for all contributions. Regards. (Report) Reply

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
