Straight Life - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Life's horizontal
Wire tied at top to
Two vertical poles
Of hope and despair
The wire hanging
Can never be straight
A life perfectly set
Its deviation from
A true straight line
Can be reduced but
Can't be eliminated
Force needed to straighten
Will snap the wire
Life must be led
With all its limitations
And should feel contented
With small deviations.

    Life is very fragile. When pulled in many directions it can break
    in two. It is best to try and be flexible then you won't run into to much
    trouble. Life may be down but we can pick ourselves up. I invite you
    to read Valley of Despair. Good write. (Report) Reply

    Hope and despair cannot be avoided nor equalled! With all limitations, let us feel contented! This is all what we can do and we are supposed to do! (Report) Reply
