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.
