THE ART OF LIVING!
Living life is a serious matter, I was told
in my early days,
To live this life properly one must amend
Seeds must be sown and nurtured, before
the plant can grow to bloom, -
The art of living must be learnt, for it to
become a boon!
One must also look for something beyond
and above, -
With faith, hope and charity, - seeking
And soon you shall get addicted to living, -
Forgetting all your doubts and misgivings!
Though these platitudes all sound very true, -
But there comes a time in a man’s life, -
When life simply starts to overtake you! !
Like a philosopher now I sit and write and
also meditate, -
Writing verses about the art of living, - as I
Poetry has become a full time job as I sit and
write my verse, -
Happy with this mode of living, before things
could get any worse!
Now I live to read, and read to write, -
And that's the way I survive!
The art of living is no mean art, -
But one must choose one’s style of living, -
And embrace this life with thanksgiving!
