This Life - Poem by Stain Katuli

A journey of journeys
That satisfies not the eyes,
Nor the heart does it:

Seeing they see
Yet true perception devoid of,
Understanding it has
Yet true wisdom still it lacks.

An endless lecture of lectures
That both teaches and advises
Where negligence costs one’s failure
And laziness unswerving poverty.

An ongoing struggle of struggles
Where ups and downs are welcome;
No sweat no survival,
So as hope for success.

A right path for rational diehards
Who don’t compromise on justice.

    Where ups and downs are welcome;
    No sweat no survival,
    So as hope for success.......................Darwin said the survival the fittest, in spite of rise and fall by the life one has to trudge the path of mortal journey of struggle for existence by sweat and blood, wonderful write, utterly; y persuasive and ingenious by imagery
