Uphill 'n' downhill through life

Take life for an escalator
Go both through its ups 
and downs
Ride it like on an elevator
Expect both smiles and 

Take life for a suspense 
you and I unaware what 
the next day will hold
Meditate and muse, or 
this book of life just 
Pore over it to watch 
life's mysteries unfold.

Take life for the open sea
But pray drown not 
yourself in it
lest you lose sight of 
God's shore
and thereby lose all 
spiritual wit.

Take life for a candle
let its glow illumine 
others too
and in each and every of 
its flicker
Try finding a hint or clue

Each soul's life unique as 
mazes of one's 
And usually for many 
life's quite an uphill battle
At times sweet as 
molasses, at times bitter 
as mint
and life's roller coaster 
shakes you like a rattle.

Life tis like the rise and 
fall of notes
Consoling to find people 
in the same boats
Ah on life you can find a 
zillion quotes.

Thus ponder over your 
life and reflect
how good you've been 
to it
and not just how it's 
been treating you
Veer around the pit, and 
keep your path lit
for darkness of the soul 
is for you unfit.

(relates to the contest 
prompt in how we 
should live our lives 
being ourselves coz we 
are all unique but we 
should also blossom into 
a giving spirit at heart)
