Glory Of Life - Poem by C. P. Sharma

There is no coin sans head and tail
So in life and death the truth entail

Either way life is full of romance
All depends on how you glance

Some even in the face of death dance
Some in spite of wealth get no chance

Some drink the cup of life to its last lease
Like Ulysses ever ready to search new seas

Tired lotus eaters just languish on the shore
For them, life doesn't have much fun in store

Glory of life lies in dying like a hero
Else life means nothing, its absolute zero.

People, on the pyres of heroes throng
Celebrations and fairs are held life long

Topic(s) of this poem: life and death
