Then the mind becomes an observer of human life, instead of confining to any one belief. Then thinking and words become a legendary symbol. So beautiful and meaningful are these words my friend. It is always a joy to read and to think over on such wonderful expressions. Thank you for your precious comments on my Poem. Love and best wishes always….Ravindra .....Carol Brown

The beauty of these lines lies in the universal thinking of its beautiful writer 'Carol Brown'. These universal feelings come, when you start looking things from a lofty height. Standing on such a height makes your vision more broad and universal. Then you do not think and see things on the basis of caste, creed and religion, but you watch things in their true prospective, irrespective of time, place, nation and religion. continue on next....j46

What is our life? Just 100 miles Which will we pass And call it life We have just time To solve all things When one is solved Next one appear We should rememeber Life is bridge And will pay For all our sins
