The ‘Gap’ called Life!

Journey of life
From cradle to grave
A glance let me have
at this ‘Gap’ between
The point End and
The point Starting!
Caught in this ‘Gap’
Thinking we ‘own’
This intangible space
And the transient time!
In this ‘ownership’ illusive
Lose, don’t we
Moments precious
Of love, peace & harmony!
Overpowered by our Ego,
With Greed, Anger & Jealousy!
Like a journey in a bus
Family& friends
Are the co-passengers
And Events momentous
Just the passing scenery!
Yet, in all arrogance,
As said the great Bhagat Singh
“We live as if, we won’t die!
We die as if, we never lived! ”
This ‘Gap’ called Life,
What then is the purpose?
To Discover my True Self
By removng all Ignorance!
Spreading love with compassion
Bringing smiles to everyone!
Leaving a fragrant mark indelible
In this ‘Gap’ called Life!
