Life…It takes you up in its arms, makes you feel like a Prince,
But then in these very arms it squeezes you so hard...it makes you wince,
It’s all a cycle, a chain, as round as a ring,
Everyone wants to be on top, everyone wants to be a king,
The problem starts when they all start trying to rule,
They try to control and ride humans, when they can’t even control a mule.
The essence of life and its worth, its meaning to them just evades,
They don’t realize the futility and as time passes it all fades.
In these days everything is just so damn pseudo,
You don’t even get affected even though death may come and go.
Then in those last few moments just as your eyes are about to close,
It strikes, you just realize it all depends on what you chose…
How, when and where you hurt,
To others were you well-behaved, rude or curt,
For as you sow so shall you reap,
Your deeds, good or bad, are accounted for accumulated in a heap.
So tread very carefully lest you step on someone’s toes,
Try to make more of friends and less of foes,
Basically it’s a simple equation of take and give,
And as for those who hurt you…just try and forgive,
Remember this…Live And Let Live….
