Treasure Island

Geetha Jayakumar

(Kerala Palakkad)

How is life?

Where I was
Where I wished to be
Where I stand now is
Just the opposite
Can’t go backward
But to keep on moving forward.

Dreams are mere dreams
Don’t know whether dreams were fulfilled any.

Anything that made you pleasant
one can say yes.

If one asks
Are you happy in your life?
This question is too tough!
It’s like having a bitter juice in a glass
and say cheers to self!
It’s a thought provoking question for me.
Reply to this question one may answer at the end.
As beginning till end is full of mystery, twists and turns.
Today, End matters much
Cant say regarding its beginning as it was not in our hands.
No answer to this
That’s life!

Still I say
Life is Beautiful!

    The Life bus goes on and on
    Asking no questions on the bumpy ride
    Or when the going is a pleasant one
    We must (being born) in acceptance bide
    Till one day it is all really done and over
    And you have to get down at a destination
    Where no body stands to receive you
    And your loved ones wave helplessly their goodbyes
    From that life bus receding into yonder blue........

    Very good write and most of us have been through this (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
