A Confer With Life Poem by sania harris

A Confer With Life

Rating: 5.0

One day life asked me
What I was doing in this world
If not to love or to pass on strength
Then why, o son of Adam, you live?

Waking up from a vague dream
I looked upon life and answered
I am here to have fun all day long
And to attain my dream, to gain success

With a giggle and a chuckle
Life sniggered and asked
If to attain your dream, why you sleep
Rouse, o son of Adam, rouse

Agitated from my sweet sleep
I glared at life and said
To dream, I fall into a long serene sleep
And then I dream, I dream, I dream

Shocked or not, life looked alarmed at me
To dream, you sleep, I know
But to achieve you dream, wake up my boy
The outside sun awaits you

That day, life taught me a lesson
To achieve success, O son’s of Adam
Wake up from your dreams

What a delightful little story - with a wise moral too, like a fairy tale. You have composed your poem with a good feel for structure and form. Just one point - the title? Do you mean a conversation with life, perhaps, or a conference with life? Confer is a verb. Hope you don't mind my correcting you - because the poem is well worth it! Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
