Colours of life

Colors of life

Sometimes you may think you know but life has a way of reminding you that you know nothing,

You may think you are strong only   for your strength to fail you half way the journey,

Or worse still even before you make your first step.

You may think that you have the entire universe at the palm of your hands,

Or on top of the world with every one fighting for your attention,

But behold! In a split second it dawns on you that it was all vanity,

Your physician gives you a clean bill of health but hours later you’re swept by a mere common cold,

You think you are the wisest person of your time only to be brought down by a village idiot,

You think you have the courage to face tomorrow and all it brings your way,

But the realization that even today just ended by the sheer grace is heart rending;

Your heart is already too weak to take it anymore….

You are caught up between a hard place and a rock, very tough choices to make,

Unfortunately it’s your heart that is trapped in between and you are trading your own happiness,

You chose to let it flow oblivious of the turbulence and storm that threatens to cup size your boat,

And now the sea is stormy, rough and wild, threatening your very own existence,

You’re once haven of peace, tranquility and serenity is rocked with uncertainty,

And now a million dollar question; do you still let it flow or you give it up and just let it go?

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything,

They just make the most of everything taking each day as it comes with a brave smile,

Opening their eyes and ears to only those things which bring them joy…

Living each day the best way they could as though there is no tomorrow…

In only three words I can sum up all have learned about life-it goes on.
