The passage from cradle to grave
A voyage of sheer consciousness
Some make it with laugh and fun
Some make it a total mess

Childhood and tender youth
For everyone, these times are naïve

thank you for the invitation. i like how you analyze human emotions in this poem. I especially like these two stanzas: You’re a winner”, existence whispers The life force serenades you You look around in sweet raptures You feel good about what you do For some the delight easily comes They float as they get it right Other, happiness rarely earns After a toil or even moonlight I am very big on positive poems. you really bring out the positive in these stanzas. but one thing: I didn't get why you called the poem moonlight. i like the poem but there are some weak elements to it your form is great but no rhyming patterm more like a open or free verse. ...

Good observations and reflections in the poem. Good words of compassion, consolation and credit to unsung, unappreciated efforts. Regards, Vanita.
