Life Is Never The Same - Poem by Lakshmi Venkataraman

Life is never the same
Hard toil to reach the pinnacle of achievement
Enjoy the momentary success
Then roll down
To rest in the valley of deep sorrow
This is the philosophy of life
If we understand this
We will feel no pain or gain
Life is never the same

The past became memories to think
Yet the present remains ours to live
The future becomes an expedition to see
When we take life as it comes
It becomes fun
If we understand this
We will feel no pain or gain
Life is never the same

Itinerant minds resembles oceans
Our hearts, like boats, that are seldom ashore
Deeds done are deep sunken ships, to remain forever & never disappear
Life is never the same

Each flower blossoms
Just to meet its end
But its life is served
To bear a fruit at the end
When we realize this trend
We will feel no pain or gain
Life is never the same

Each moment think that
This scenario will change
Happiness to sorrow,
Sorrow to happiness
This is the vital cycle of very life
If we understand this
We will feel no pain or gain
Life is never the same
