Life is like a desert Where it ends we don’t know, It faces happiness and hurt But we never forget the years ago. Life keeps on going further But we never bother about the future, We keep of thinking of new stocks Before we face a sudden shock. Suddenly a sandstorm comes in face And we have to handle the situation with grace. And in one moment life becomes miserable without fun And then we have to live to cheer someone, And life continues on this way And on this desert we have to stay. We have to live whether we want or not As we cannot make excuses of any sort. Life has many ups and downs At times we smile at times we frown. In this way life is like a desert Facing happiness, sadness and hurt. Life is like a river, The way it starts is crazy, And goes on further and further It starts becoming lazy. As it flows along its journey It faces a lot of difficulty But overcoming all of them It goes on shining as a gem Similarly, life is filtered with miseries and trouble But in these situations we need to be humble As being rude, angry and bad We make everyone sad. Some struggle and pass their way And those who don’t have to suffer. Those who succeed find happiness and gay And those who don’t remain like a duffer. The river starts it journey from a peak And as flows it becomes old and weak. And if it was good, it carries tributaries And if bad goes alone to the seas.
