My Life - Poem .... Love Life, Love Yourself ....

My Life

The limited measures
Of my perception
Try to fathom,
To quantify and define
My possibilities,
My limitlessness.

How much?
How good?
How bad? ....

Where do I stand? ….

The urge for Uniqueness
And craving for Oneness –
Are they antonymous
Or naturally co-existent? ….
Are they there?

Uncommon or common,
Liked or disliked,
Nobody can live
My life for me.

I agree with your thoughts, expressed in this nice poem.

So easily, people judge others, without knowing anything about the other person's struggles and circumstances.

Each one of us, are unique and special. Each one of us have to live our own lives. The best thing is to stand by each other, and support each other, as fellow human beings.

This was thoughtful and well composed. Thanks for sharing.
