Sonnet: Life Is Full Of Surprises - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Some things in life remain an utter flop!
My plans to make my life secure did fail;
I thought I’ll run but I could only hop!
My mind and body couldn’t stay hearty, hale.

The things I thought were precious-most were not;
Some ignored things were worth their weight in gold;
The mountain fizzled out and turned a dot;
The innocence of youth was gone when old.

The things that God bestowed on me were great;
Although delayed, they stood stead-fast with time;
I learnt that I could always change my fate;
Sometimes, a dollar got dwarfed by a dime!

Life’s problems pernicious get solved so fast;
The ways of God are strange but truly last.
