A Race - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

Life is a race
Against time
Where by gone days
Do not come back
And life becomes
An endless parade
Of ordinary days.....

Where we have to have
A realistic thinking
To create a pure heart
And heal our grief
And we have to learn
To teach a unit of living life
In the real world.......

And in this life's race
We have to learn to overcome stress
And fight against the reality of life
And try to turn the wheel of pain
To see a fresh beginning
And a magnificent start
Of a new and happy race.............

    Your philosophy interested me. Indeed, life can seem battle between competitive adversaries whose only wish is for you to fall at the first hurdle. With the obvious implication that, with the correct determination, we can achieve our aspirations I believe to have moved more to your persuasion. (Report) Reply

    And try to turn the wheel of pain
    To see a fresh beginning
    And a magnificent start
    Of a new and happy race.............10

    we have find new ways in any case
    life can't be at ease
    we got to think and release
    a new wave with concept please

    it will take us to new height
    if we throw our complete weight
    think not of wrong but always right
    to win over foes without any fight

    I so agree with all you say,
    we have to find the happy way
    and smile even when we are in pain
    or covered by emptiness..
