What Life Teaches! Poem by Valsa George

What Life Teaches!

Rating: 5.0


From life we learn many a valuable truth
But alas! Some dismiss it as mere froth

While life itself is a riddle
Remember, Death is an inexorable puzzle

Hatred burns life like fire
And wickedness turns it into mire

On Earth, forgiveness bonds hearts
But revenge, sure, breaks all bonds

Even a guilty falls prostrate
Before the compassionate willing to commiserate

Know, a true friend has no deceit
And a truly learned has no conceit

If jealousy is an acid which erodes
Generosity is a fuel that reloads

If inactivity is akin to death
Creativity is vital as breath

If perseverance conquers mountains
Laziness dries up fountains

While pride leads a man to his fall
Humility takes him closer to his goal

While Honesty leads him to salvation
Deceit drives him to damnation

Patience is an inexhaustible well
And perversion, a sure road to hell

Know that those who long for the crown
Should also be torn by the thorn

While love of God takes us to eternity
Love of man leads us to fraternity

Ye Friends, with such priceless tips learned in bits
Light up your life in glowing glitz

Bury your past with all its woes
As the New Year of hope brightly zooms!

Pearls of wisdom at times spill on the floor of the house of reason and observation. The petals of your lines open up, teach and move on till it is bloomed into a poem of a fantastic format. You are at your best of didactic exuberance and philosophic grandeur here dear Madam. A gift poem for taking up a few new year resolutions for all! .
