Mistry of life

Same puzzle, same math

Same circle, same path

One bore, another go

one rise, another fall

Life’s full of unexpected coincidence and surprises

Won’t know what’s gonna happen the next seconds


Same dream, same vision

Same goal, same ambition

One earn another loose

One hurray another buzz

Life’s full of diversal events

Though face whatever it holds



Same world, same revolution

Same word, same question

One come throne another overthrown

One blossomy grown another weaken drawn

Life’s full of unpredictable mystery

Can’t be unraveled even if it dug way deeply

    There is a level of angst that is unavoidable I get it. That line "one earn one loose," am I correct in using "lose". Nice piece

    The riddle of life can't be resolved, only a moment here and there can be teased from the mesh and possibly understood. I read and re-read your poem. Still there's so much more. Splendid.

    Interesting ideas. "Life's full of 'diversal', should be 'diverse' events". How true! "One come throne another overthrown". Very good line. It reminds me of the British Rock Group 'The Who' and their famous song of ten minutes and three seconds - 'Won't Get Fooled Again'. I visited the port of Massawa during the Sixties before Eritrea won its independence so I expect much has changed, hopefully mostly for the better. Best wishes, Peter

    Wonderful efforts you, my dear, made for this wonderful topic. Language matters a bit but your thoughts are enviably recommended. I am foreseeing, with the humble prayers of Zaeem Yousaf, you perspective lessonful poet. Thanks.

    I'm not sure if you were mispelling words or just using the wrong ones to express your thought. I do know this piece was very hard to understand.
