Simple Yet Golden Rules Of Life! - Poem by Kavya ...

Time once lost
can never be regained,
Its like a river
You cannot touch the same water twice!
the flow that has passed
will never pass again!

Trust once lost
is difficult to regain,
Retain your self respect
Do not fall prey to distrust,
as the saying goes 'Trust thyself only
and another shall not betray thee! '

Character once lost
is lost forever.
It's something developed through experience, your deeds
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost
When health is lost, something is lost
When character is lost, all is lost

And if Life is lost, nothing remains.
We all have only one life, Live it to the fullest!
Don't make promises when you are in joy
Don't reply when you are sad
Don't take decisions when you are angry
Think twice and act wise!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Life is not a race. It's all about making priorities.

    Sincerity and integrity which form the integral part of ones character are virtues which cannot be quantified with money. Indeed, when character is lost, all is lost. A nice piece of poetry written with insight. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
