LEARN TO LIVE!
Learn to live with realities of life
Lest you fall on the thorns of life
Blessed you sure under the pains of strife
Need to know the ways of life!
Rise and fall are part of life
Rich and poor are part of the world
Sick and healthy are part of the mould
Success and failure part of the file!
Hot and cold, sweet and sour gift of God
All are one, all are same keep in mind
All the world my hearth and home
All the creations my kith and kin!
Be at peace with trees and plants
Be at home with rats and ants
Be at joy with sun and moon
Be at love with high and low!
None can deny what HE provides
None can provide what HE denies
Be at peace with what you get
Lest you fall on the thorns of wants!
Reconcile to the inevitable
Lest you become miserable
Has to be lived, the life available
Sail with the wind and play it cool!
War and peace way of the world
Love and hate part of the globe
Learn to live with the realities of life
Lest you fall on the thorns of life!
