Life Is A Mystery - Poem by Bartholomew Arkoh Boamah Sarbah

Life.... Life.... Life....
Oh life, life is truely a mystery
Life, life, life
Why is it beyond understanding?
It is said and truely it is a journey
A journey to where....?
No one knows
Yesterday I was born into the world
From where....?
No one knows
Today I am old....
Why?
Because it is life
Previously I felt I was the the strongest man ever created into the world
But now where is my strenght?
Today a man is born into the world
Tomorrow he is dead
Oh life!
It like a moving snail trying to reach its sleeping place
Alas life is truely mysterious
Always think about the end
The end is better and more valuable than the beginning.

    Very profound and intense poem, encircling universal and timeless questions with no answers, very well written enjoyed. Don't agree thought that the end is better than the begining (Report)Reply
