Life and Its Purpose

Life on Earth is a God given boon It should be skillfully set to tune Both beauty and charm it should enclose Should smell fragrant like a red, red rose If life be made a saga of commitment and love That by sacrifice, now and then made anew In colors cascading like the welkin’s bow It will bloom radiant in unusual glow Know, life is a dispenser of joy and grief Both, we have to accept as they shift brief In gloom, hope there is a better day in wait Too much of anything can our soul sedate To idle away, we have hardly any time Do what one can in life’s best prime Keep away from the grip of spite and hate And live life for love and love’s delight Placed 8th in the contest 18.

Yes, Valsa, so many agree with high thinking but simple living. Gandhi? Thoreau? Will return to take diction notes. Shalom shalom & blessings

Alas and alack, we have all those people deciding whom we can love, and how, and when - especially those prohibiting response to God's pheromones . . . .

A great Christian based poem with great advice for the many unbelievers. God has given us love and compassion not justice. That comes later. Lovely argumentative poem. Victor
