The Lesson Of Survival - Poem by Seema Chowdhury

Up and down, time and tide
Come to us from narrow and wide
Paths of this unpredictable life
And teach us new lesson to survive

So don't treat life as an empty dream
For many ways are open under hope's beam
Which takes us to the play ground of life
And show us new games to play and survive

Where flowers of joy and thorns of sorrow
Stay together today and tomorrow
Just like roses which grow with the thorns
And dreadful dusk which is followed by morn

So try in this little time that prevails
To achieve all goods that you can avail
For this life is like a merry go round
Which stops when it touches the ground

And then very quietly we go and sleep
Several feet under the ground very deep
Where no more lessons of unpredictable life
Come to teach us new ways to survive.
