Won the war Lost the battle


The life is exquisitely a battle field
where we have to wage war
at different stages of our life
why not this war is bloodless
but we need to wage war
at different stages of our life
why not this war is bloodless
but we need to wage war
at each and every step of our life

To wage war against illiteracy
To wage war against poverty
To wage war against natural calamity
and so on in battlefield of life
winning all the wars
we have to loose the battle field
when the life does not exist.

But there are some
who wage war at the cost of blood
are definitely to loose the battle
during the life time
leaving the life only to repent
why not he is great in history

The person pleading such law
are also facing philosophical end
where nothing is left to think on.

But least are the person
waging a bloodless war
walking perpetually to destination
achieving goal of life
twinkling like an immortal star
where philosophy never dies.

    Beautiful poem, especially related to todays struggle. The title is really touching. Won the war fighting it, but at the end lost the life itself. Many bloodless war are fought and many give up fighting continously alone especially the end to success are very nearby and they feel they lost it and give up...Some dies without seeing success and many such wars are fought in our nearby and it is noticed by none until and unless something cruel happens and it comes to notice of all. Some lives are born with sword and they have to die fighting....Its sad but true. (Report) Reply
