Let me start this important post on ‘life’ with a short poem (of my style i.e. short, simple, plain and prosaic poem).  Later three more poems will be added.  Also, I will not forget to place a few selected quotations on life to help all of us understand life better.  Here we go….

LIFE – 1

People say : It takes entire life to understand life

How can I write about life and do justice in a single post?!

Better we take care of life’s each moment

After realizing and learning many things from the past

Yes – it is possible to lead a great future with a highly satisfied life

Provided we discover and create ourselves each day

Provided we add value to our lives each day.


LIFE – 2


Life has life

When you value life.

Life is what – tell me please

If you don’t care and value life?


LIFE – 3


Life is love – life is journey

Life is pain – life is also gain.

Life is all challenges – whether you like it or not

Life gives enough opportunities – whether you can grab it or not.


LIFE – 4


Life is all challenges, hurdles and also satisfaction

Life tries to make you a man of all seasons.

Hey! Dare to lead a great life

Take care to lead a contented life.

Life is yours – choice is also yours

Make it a useful life to be remembered

Years after years by others.


Is it enough on life?  You have read four poems at a stretch on the same topic.  Is it a test of your patience or test of your interest?  Let me not comment further or ask any question.  But, perhaps poem have some substance to gear you up for another journey….

  1. The meaning of life is often difficult to understand. But in your short poems , starting from first to fourth you have explained it very clearly and given the message how to make the life meaningful and enjoyable.Every moment of life is important, hence it has to be taken care to remain alive with our creativity, activity and surroundings. Your message has impressed me much and I do like it, I carry it with me to make all good things happen in my life.
