This Is The Family Life - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

This is the life which is full of care,
Persons like this attitude are found rare.
Tolerance is too difficult to bear in body,
Such persons are there to speak truth ready.

To keep nonviolence is hardest task for men,
Chastity is top quality; difficult for women.
Benevolence bewitches people but to gain hard,
Still such people are there who tackle with glad.

This is the life where full of risk,
Some like hardest jobs that have time fix.
Some dislike let up, let down and levity,
Some like toilsome works to keep away poverty.

This is the life where full of responsibility,
It maintains discipline but doesn't reduce liberty.
Such persons are there who like this quality,
They believe in God and believe in their ability.

This is the life which makes nation great,
People are tied in with love and don't hate.
People like to sacrifice and life is fair.
This is the life on family is full of care.

    Nice portrayal here. Family is my bedrock and place of safety. You speak of family on a larger scale as well and I like that...especially during these divisive times. I think for some it is hardest to live in this way....a place where we all have to work together and not live life in extremes. Well done. (Report)Reply

    Kumarmani, I love how your poetry so often is filled with family ideals and quality that is shared the world over. You so succinctly describe the essence of a truly close family, and it's ripple effect around the world. Being a member of a family helps to keep one rooted in family values, morals and ethics. Please continue to write and spread the word so more people will understand the importance of family. Thank you, RoseAnn (Report)Reply
