Life is cruel Poem by hasmukh amathalal


Life is cruel
Does deal well
If you remain lazy
And show no courtesy

It does not give you time
So take decision in split second time
If you miss to act
The loss only may share with you as fact

You can shed tears
Or lament about pain to bear
It does not afford you second chance
It had come and you failed at once

Why to speak about sun?
Why to think about afternoon?
They are heavenly bodies and duty bound
We need to adjust and suitably stand on ground

We need to take care about our role
Respond in a way that correspondence with call
Whether it is big challenge or routine work
It must be matched with equal promising word

“Tomorrow” may not bring light
You will have to make inroad and fight
Still time may be left to get ready
Move swiftly and fast but steady
