Life (The Real Meaning Of Life)

Rating: 4.6

Life, the wonderful dream
Never meets with reality
Till its final moment
Called death
Every day we dream of
Conquering new continents
And kingdoms
Without realising
All are illusions
And without realising
The final reality
Will one day envelop us
So finality is the true reality

Reality may be more than what I conclude. Nevertheless my conclusions will come to an end or perhaps a new beginning!

The first sentence - 'Life, the wonderful dream'- and the last sentence - 'So finality is the true reality - are superb poetic expressions. A perfect blend of philosophy and poetic brilliance. Amazingly beautiful poem.
