Life’s Recipe - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

You cut my thoughts into pieces,
Wash my dreams like dishes,
Mince ideas with wishes
Test my patience with persistence…

I like the way you serve me with menu
With every opportunity there is an avenue
You make me slog for revenue
Finally reward with retinue

Your toughest dish is meditation
It removes hearts’ hesitation
It takes courage and determination
To acknowledge power of omnipotent

Sometime you in lighter facet
Cook some special dish for occasion
We care every aspect of occupation
You nurture and bless with jubilation


Even when you offer your last supper
You make sure that we make till last puff
Make memorable our last stuff
Before death takes us from this earth

    I am sure the 'she' referred here is Life! Life gives us opportunities, makes us slog for revenue, gives us dreams, makes us ponder over the Power beyond us, gives us moments of disappointments as well as jubilation! Yes, life serves us mixed dishes. A great write touching upon every aspect of human life! (Report) Reply
