Humour Poems: 12 / 500

My Strength

Rating: 4.7

MY STRENGTH

What is in life, so great?
Hard times arrive to hurt
with no notice prior.
Fortunes...ah so promiscuous,
flirt awhile and disappear!
Lo, this is life,
full of strain, struggle and strife!

But I built my own fort!
In my life, a good part
I gave to jest and laughter.

Let come pain or predicament
I can stave off and stay stiff
like an unbending alp.

Believe it or not...
humour is my armour,
my weapon and my forte;
bearing and braving my blues
and cruising my life boat
through many an unpleasant strait,
safely and smoothly
towards the other port!

Yes, the ability to see the ludicrous side of life and to laugh it off, coupled with a positive frame of mind, help in winning the battle of life! Even in matters of love, - one must not' love too well ' like Othelo, but love wisely so! 10! Seasons greetings and a Happy New Year - 2009! - Raj Nandy

what we think is eventually reflected back -this is the fundamental law of nature and i am sure if u have chosen to smile -smile u will! that is surely the way to beat the very life out from all problems that come across us.-kick them with yr positive attitude
