A Question

Rating: 3.6

A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.

the question is would you rather have had life or rather not.. not only pertains to you but also the question is for any life.. I would have to say yes..even knowing it is for a specified time and who really wants to live forever..your body would only fall apart eventually..so the best thing to do is enjoy life..you may not get another one..of course you may if God so wishes. :)

A very pertinent question on how much eternity can be counted as a balance sheet of life.

The narrator brings focus upon pessimism that innately abides in most humans who have been hurt or wronged by the myriad ways people have developed to deceive or work against one another. So what? Life is still worth living.

A great thought provoking poem. In Vedic philosophy it is said that Supreme Being created the Universe for its own enjoyment- Ananda. Looking at our pain and suffering I wonder if It asks that question?
