Joys And Sorrows - Poem by Valsa George

Joys dissolve
Like sugar added to tea
Lending life, a new flavour.
Sorrows sink to the bottom
To be brought to the surface
With every slight stir,
Like the dreg that settles
At the bottom of a tea cup
Making it unsavoury to sip

But joys and sorrows together make life.

    A beautiful piece of poetry bristling with insight. A lovely depiction of journey through life which is a voyage of bliss and sorrows. Thanks for sharing Prof. Please read my poem THE OBSESSIVE AGONY OF LUST. (Report) Reply
