Life At Hand - Poem by kaunda kapungwe

life is one thing beyond human understanding.
life holds what you want it to be.
if you choose ignorance, for sure it will turn its back on you, but if you choose knowledge and wisdom, for sure you will be sentiments with life.
life is like time which can not reverse itself neither can it wait for you to catch up.
so when you do things, do to perfection or rather have it in mind that you will never be accorded that opportunity again.
life itself is like a journey taken through the road of potholes where you do not have expectation of the future but you drive by hope of reaching your destination.
life is also like holding a mug cup, once you drop it, it will break and if it breaks, you can never mend it and if you mend it, you can easily bend it.
in addition, life has its span like that of a bulb in which it has a chance to shine brighter and a time it will never shine at all.
therefore, if you want to live good life comply with its rules.
