We've all heard it before
thrown randomly at us
This discourse, contemplated often
In movies, on sofas or in mountains
Disconcerting... for it's unwanted
We've not painted it that way
From the spectrums of dreamy eyes
On shelves of our hooded selves
For instance, wealth will come and go
Till the time it stays, an alacrity
And if gone tomorrow, a fear
Both ways, a sorrow!!!
The prestige with toil created
Is but a shy bride off stage
He is as much hated
As he is respected !
And love is a bond
Permanent or temporary
Even if lasts long
Will ache in the memory !
So the discourse mounted
From wisemen's mouth
Stands as labyrinth
As ultimate truth...
Indeed you guessed it right
To be living and breathing
Is the essence of life!
