Lifestyle - Poem by C. P. Sharma

Some eat to live
Some live to eat
Some eat corn
Some eat meat

For some life bitter
For some it's sweet
Some cry, it's foul
Some just sweet tweet

Some fly in the sky
with hollow bones
Some crawl on ground
and miserably groan

Some sing songs
of all that He gave
Some grumbling
go down to the grave

Between the two lay
the real lifestyle
In muddy waters
the lovely lotus smiles

Topic(s) of this poem: life, lifestyle

    Starting with 'Some eat to live... Some live to eat', the poet has narrated all kinds of individual differences, from fortunate to the wretched, in our society and thoughtfully opines:
    Some sing songs / of all that He gave
    Some grumbling / go down to the grave
