Balance Sheet Of Life.

Rating: 5.0

In the precious balance sheet of life
We have our character as the capital
And our wisdom as the investments
We enter our feelings and thoughts
Share the ideas and values
Credit by giving, debit by receiving
Happiness as the assets
Sarrows as the liabilities
Friends as the profit
Enemies as the loss

Patience and humanity as the bank balance

Please go through my poem My Balance Sheet which I wrote exactly three years back. If vice versa would have happened, what would you say. May be nothing may be felt today but as you go further when someone does the same thing you will definitely realise. I am sorry if i had used any harsh comment. Still I would appreciate if you could go through my poem. Thank you!

Dear geetha madam, I read yours yesterday only, after reading a comment by Mr. Akhtar, it's simply superb, a real emotional feel your brought into, it's thoroughly personal I believe, but mine is just materialistic with a moral to live wisely, I think two lines reflects the same idea like profit to friends and loss to enemies, I wrote it based on my observation, like my CA was explaining the balance sheet to file IT, I was confused so he explained certain things like a story, immediately I wrote this poem, because it was some thing new I learnt for the first time in life, otherwise I wouldn't get a chance to write on such things, honestly speaking, I write just my experience, I always avoid reading others works because I want to give shape to my feelings and emotional also being a single parent I hardly have time to do real justice to this platform, generally I use this platform as a friend who is ready to hear my grumbles, again I ought to say you have done a real justice to the poem balance sheet of life, please I am nothing compared to yours as Akhtar said, yes geeta poem is the best, hope I speak from heart no ill feelings, love you madam, take care, thanks a lot for the invitation, if tome permits sure to read and comment all your precious works, it's my pleasure, thanks again

My Balance Sheet - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar Profit is the each friend I added Loss is my each friend lost due to my mistakes. Miscellaneous is where friends is combinations of both love and hatred. Suspense is my missing friends or out of touch. Repairs and maintenance for my health. Petty ones are the cold, flue etc I get every time. Outstanding is the number of likes I expect for my Poems. Prepaid is the likes I clicked in advance for others Poems. My bank were full with love and care. Loan Is the happiness I give to others. Purchases is the thanks I purchased from others. Sales is by fulfilling the wishes of others. Profit was more than loss...but Asset are the love I got From my parents, brothers, sisters and relatives. Liability are I couldn't return back The love and the care which I got from them which will remain always as liability. Is my balance sheet well balanced? I tried to balance it... Nope, my liabilities balances more than assets. (Geetha Jay Kumar submitted her poem 4th July,2013, I don't say v.m. sarasvati munuswamy has copied her, but both the

Really, I have no idea about it, my knowledge is minimum, based on my life, situations, people I come across, true to my observations, nothing to copy from others, I believe balance sheet prepared will be the same by all, may be vocabulary, or presentation differs, also I am new here hardly 7months old, but I read very few poems of others, I just use this platform to express my feelings and emotions not to copy others, I really don't understand what made you to say so.....anyhow I am least bothered, actually I am really happy more people are reading mine, as long comparing my scribbles with great existing poets for years over here, I take it as my pleasure to extend my gratitude for your research, for which I don't ever have time, hardly I scribble and disappear, unless I receive request from others I don't read others works, because I want to write what I want first, later reading and understanding others works, , it's your freedom to question, hope I answered, though it nags me, fine thanks again for your comparison, but I wonder how you could blame never strongly, anyhow becoming famous has both pros and cons, I realise now, welcome keep researching dear poet, love you take care

Great book of accounts, our lives must be! At the end we must give an account of our lives before God. Some live their lives giving without expecting anything in return. We choose to live our lives...hopefully balancing our accounts. Thank you.
