Life, Where Is life!


Life is always light
for some
Life is always fight
for some,
Life is full of light
For some
Life is without light for some,
Life is search for light,

Some live a long life,
Some live for a short,
Some live for a purpose,
some live for themselves,
Some live for others,

Some are good thinkers,
Some are fantastic,
Some live in fantasies,
Some are short sighted,
And live a life, full of fight,
Some or long sighted,
And always stumble!

Some are great by birth,
Some are great by thoughts,
Some are great by deeds,
some are really great,
and they have the vission,
They have the strength and will,
they look as a lake still,
Yet they are full of life,
They always smile
And keep worries way a mile!


some has ways open, some has to open them on own,
Some Wander where life takes,
Some take life where they want,
Some are really great
Those realise, if not there is either birth or death,
Who is there to say what is life?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'This place is a dream.
Only a
sleeper considers it real.'
~Rumi

Life is a dream,
One who is in sleep,
Can it be real to one awake?

    Wonderful poem. Life is all that it can be. Who is to say if it molds us to what it wants us to be or gets molded with one's will or perseverance or so e thing even beyond that. (Report) Reply

    In this moment life is like you say here in this lovely poem, however, my idea is, that everybody brings out the law for the other. Ones one understand this, life become light and easy, because life is a School room where we all get lessons. If we solve the problems what we create in reality, comes the next one, because until we are here on this earth we just have to learn and learn. You painted the perfect picture of humanity in this moment. (Report) Reply

    Ramadas, your poem is very beautiful, it speaks of life in so many ways, with every breath we take we inhale the good and the bad and that's life. Thank you for your amazing poem! I love Rumi too, very much. (Report) Reply

    Life is nothing but life
    which leaves ones own signature
    behind the mankind
    for the future generation (Report) Reply

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
