Except Love Life Is Meaningless - Poem by Abdul Wahab

The soldier, my life, at war
Fighting the adversaries soul out there
Without any error or dearth in effort,
But at the end got ignominious defeat
In the barrack pondering deep, what is life?
Now life is hell, and death is bliss
My life, my soldier, thinks
Joy or sorrow, defeat or victory
Time eats up all and relieve in history
Two pennies more or less
Except love life is meaningless.

    the life is like a soldier, the soldier fights to his best to save his life, there is no dearth of effort or the error in his attempt.......it is a question of life and death......but somewhere somehow the life got defeated....i mean the soldier defeated and to him the torture and imprisonment waits for him and he might be even killed....to a defeated soldier the life is hell now..........and he wishes death....and to him death is a bliss.............he tried his best but he could not win....now he feels....this is his destiny.....he could not do any thing more than this...it is his fate.....to him life is now..meaningless! two pennies more or less......summarises the whole life...some body got some bit of extra wealth but his life also ends with death....what is the difference who has got a few pennies less....both has the same ending.......death......................and the time eats up everything and do relieve in history.....a good epithet has been created......... but only memories of love are left behind.....
