Life favours, nor ever frowns


The ways of life as wanton be as come,
Yet, life is known not to favour nor frown,
Opportune times come but few souls to crown,
Life is known to challenge many, not some;
Yet, there are those that always sanguine be
Relishing fruits of a fulfilling life,
As there be those in abject misery,
Entwined in wishful wants, life torn in strife;
And yet, life never does discriminate,
Men’s always free to opt for reds from blues,
A twain of paths at T-cross oft called fate;
Men savouring, suffering choice they choose;
Long ere the fate favours or frowns indeed,
Man has widest field to sow choicest seed.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

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

In secret pleasure - secret tears
