Rhythm Of Life! ! ! - Poem by Shahzia Batool

A mild smile is but a screen
vague and opaque
we find it hard to see through it
the mist of grief
though it persists in purer feel
and harder sense;
Life, in fact is a finer blend
of gloom and glee;
so this harmony in facts of life,
aspects of life
makes it quite liveable and lovable...

    All true, you said in the poem.
    Aapi, considering our real cause of breathing, the joys and worries become different, and also what we call it Tension.

    OK, life is 2 sided: up-down, happy-sad, in-out, until you find out who you are, after that just giving thanks, gratefulness, goodness to all, understanding all why they are for what they are.
    Wishing you the best.

    Life is a composition, balancing the bitter with the sweet - all things considered. The balance is necessary. For example, it’s good to be able to smile during the bitter times; that’s what gets us through. A good poem for encouragement. : -) (Report) Reply

    This is the truth. Many people lives that way. When we loose the ego, which can be hurt, see everybody as a child of God, then we can find true happiness ALWAYS. (Report) Reply

    Life, in fact is a finer blend
    of gloom and glee;
    life again is a canned send
    of bonds yet free.

    beautiful poem...sagacious, written with an awareness of the deeper turmoils that the sky spins on Adams progeny.
    loved it...kudos... :)

    what can be said as a comment on this lovely poem, ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ? ? ? ? ? ? ? , i believe and strongly believe that poems like RHYTHM OF LIFE should be just read with a feather touch given by the readers' eyes, , ears, , and heart, , i am afraid many at times this one-liner comments tamper and tarnish the marvel and beauty of the' rhythm of life '.enjoyed this poem thoroughly, , shahzia is not only a wonderful literary critic but also a wonderful literary artist :) thanx (Report) Reply

    When I was young I cried every second I found, but when somebody came by, I was ready to smile. That smile stuck on me, now I do not have to cry anymore, I can be kind and smiling all the time. It is a good feeling. (Report) Reply
