The Journey Poem by Parameswaran Nair Damodaran Nair

The Journey

Rating: 5.0

Birth launches the journey to death.
Make precious the moments in between
Like a lapidary enriches gemstones

Life is very short. Every effort should be taken reach a target that is eternal

Beautiful expression. What is between birth and death is what matters most.

I'd have skipped the 'launch' if I'd had any say in the decision! A nice poem, if one agrees with it. I do not believe in 'a target which is eternal'; I'm not sure what that means anyway. Life is sometimes too LONG, and the ending is often not a 'happy' one. : ( bri : )

Thank you Bri. Launch has a meaning 'to start'. Death is sure. But none is concentrating on death. Everybody is toiling to achieve something great, not death.

Why half day? We can only work at best 12 hours out of 24 hours
