Life’s Lessons - Poem by Han Min Ohn

Life scarcely grants you too many chances
You must grasp them when you can
Hesitate too long and away chances will fly
And leaves you behind with regrets for a whole life time

Life never offers you too much time
You must use every moment to its prime
Waste a part of it and you will regret
For not using it beneficially when you are about to rest

Life rarely provides you a level ground
You are either the weak one or the strong
On which side you stand is not that important
As long as you know exactly what you want

Life hardly bestows you a perfect world
There is either some defects or other in your show
But if you can keep your mind calm and at ease
You can ignore these defects and live as you please.
