Life Is A Journey - Poem by shakil ahmed

Life is a Journey

Life is an endless journey
Without any pause or stop
It began before
The beginning of moments.
It will end after
The ending of moments.
Life is ageless
By its own nature
It has conquered the limits
Of fleeting time
Since its very birth
On a certain day,
Secretly and silently,
We descend in
Our mother’s womb
From heaven’s above
But before our descend
We were in care of
Our benevolent God.
After passing some days
In this mortal world,
Again we embark on
The ship of death
To reach our final abode
In celestial world
Where death becomes feeble
And can not touch our
Impalpable soul.
The concept of mortal and immortal
Vanishes like bubbles in the air
Life conquers time and death
Man survives
Only changing shape.

    Truly, life is an unpredictable journey! Not just in this life alone but through several lives!
    But today is ours! Lets make the best out of it to do good.
    An excellent poem on life and death!
