Life - Poem by Clarence Prince

Life is like a beautiful rose
There is no cause to suppose
It doesn't comes to stay
With time it will fades away
It’s with us wherever we stray
To everything will be its prey
It’s just a matter of which day
When on its target it shall lay

Life can be hurtful to anyone
It doesn't favourites anyone
It can be quite hard for some
For others it can be awesome
It not a forever sure to keep
As from everything it will creep
It more likes a hill very steep
That one has to sit and weep

Life didn't promise to be easy
Good for whom it’s nice and cozy
And sadness is for most of the rest
Those who want is their daily guest
In life there are many tough tests
Although many may struggle less
Yet there is none as I will guess
That lives without a share of test

    Like the Shakespearean Macbeth would say:

    'Fair is foul and foul is fair'

    Life is a blend of juxtaposed opposites presented in human experiences.
    Great poem! Thanks for sharing.

    Life
    Life is about life. That we know. As a universal poem we need to see an obliqueness.

    Congratulations for poem of the day
