What's Life - Poem by Sayeed Abubakar

What's life
if there are no struggle and gain?
What's love
if no pleasure and pain?

Existing like the dead
lying on the bed
of soil
will spoil
the goal of life, o Man.

Who can
be a Majnu* if he
does not fall in the sea
of pain?
Without suffering, there's no gain.

*Majnu means Kayes, a legendary lover of Laila

    Very right... if there is no pain no suffering nothing new and no new feeling then what is the point to live? It will be like living like a zombie!
    What is life
    if there are no struggle and gain?
