How the life should be


How the life should be, I wonder many times
How to live in the world, where happiness is a crime
Is that true we live life because it is for living
If it is so, why we kill ourselves working?
We live in the world like the machine they do
When we become old we don’t know, like years just flew
Sun too might get tired, but our every second is pre acquired
We work like animals and still fear “What if we are fired? ”
Where all the fun all the bliss disappeared?
Earlier we “Worked to live” now “Live to work” that’s weird

This is not what the life should be
This is not what it meant to be
Look the merriment that waits for you on the boulevard
Watch the birds playing, life is short, there is no time to be Nerd
Lets your heart see and speak from your eyes
Admire the nature’s beauty and lovely blue skies
Spread your wings and let your dreams fly like eagle
Walk like the lion in jungle, with no worries, just regal
Swim like fish of the ocean, which lives with no fret about when to die
Live not just to die, live your dreams and don’t give up before you try.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
