(c) 1 (Life/Philosophy) Life Is.... - Poem by Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean

It has neither a beginning nor an end
You can never predict where it will bend.

Life is a teacher, it will show you the way
But unless you live will run away.

If you have no fear of living, you will find
No fear of death and you will not mind.

You have to feel the agonizing sorrow and feel the pain
Only then it will heal and you will be whole again.

It is in every leaf, in your smile, in your tears
In your toil, in your triumphs and in your fears.

Just enjoy the journey without looking back
Savour the senses and you will not lack.

Truth is more in the process than the result
Liberates you from thought and you can exult

To see the truth in the false, thats the key
To understand, without changing it...just let it be
Love life, live it and it will set you free....

    My Response TO: Life Is....

    I know not the commencement of my life
    Never did I try to find the reason for this!

    I know not when I will conclude this journey
    Or for that matter, when will all this change!

    I knew life – as tutor, guiding thru the path;
    And, I glided along, never minding the rough!

    I had lived fearlessly, in total consciousness;
    Never feared the fatality, never kept in mind!

    I had struggled thru painful strives; survived
    That was the reason, I was always satisfied!

    I was aware my life was in every smile & tears;
    And, in my sweats, my qualms and my feats!

    I never turned around and I did enjoy this life;
    How I relished my sanity, never did I fall short!

    I treasured my precision; cared less the effects
    So I gloated thru my liberation off my thoughts!

    I filtered my mind & got the facts, farces unseen
    Thus I had loved & lived life – towards freedom!

    One has to experience the depths of the lows to appreciate the highs of the highs, indeed. You tell of it well. Finely crafted singalong, deceptively simplistic style. t x (Report)Reply
