Life cannot be defined in one thing

It is stream that flows smoothly,

but ignores every possibility.

A wave that stumble someone’s heart,

But challenges a weakly mind.

It is a road that directly leads you to your path,

But stops you with lies but an easy catch.

A bridge that connects you to what you are meant to be,

but doesn’t know how strong the foundation would be.

It may be a wood that gives you shelter,

but blocks you to become better.

A cloth that feels you the comfort,

But hides who you truly are.

This life cannot be defined as one thing,

It is many things.

There are ups and downs,

Sweetness, bitterness and bland.

Thus, life gives us chances, freedom, and a special gift.

Chances to correct wrongs,

Freedom to express ourselves,

And a special gift which is life itself.

Life isn’t that hard,

It is us who makes life difficult,

Be brave and be strong.

As long as life is present,

God will never be absent.
