What is life

What is life..... Life is hope. Life cannot be lived without hope Knowledge is the essential ingredients or mix which keeps hope alive. Life is not a race against time but a precious gift. Therefore, with hope and knowledge life should be ridden to its goal. Man by his very impulsive nature could end his life, like the face of coin where heads you win and tail you loose. The two sides of the coin shows the Jerkily and Hyde personality of person where good and bad abides in you. Through hope with experience gained through knowledge you should steer life and keep your head up in extreme bad situations in the cycle of life. When hope is firmly anchored in your soul, life could weather all situations even in the stormy conditions and sail to a bright future. Ravi Sathasivam / Sri Lanka All rights are reserved.

    For me my hope is Jesus and within him is all knowledge and wisdom. By welcoming him within my heart he provides me all I need for this life and the next. I very much enjoyed this thought provoking poem. Thanks
