Life is Like a Multifaceted Prism
Life is like a multifaceted prism,
which gives different colored images,
when viewed from different angles.
Look how it appears to different people:
a. Life is a struggle, face it.
b. Life is a brief intermission, between birth and death, enjoy it.
c. Life is a lesson, learn it.
d. Life is not a joke, take it seriously.
e. Life is work, work is life.
f. Life is a dream, to be realized.
g. Life is to be lived, enjoy it.
h. Life, without a wife, is no life.
i. Life is not a bed of roses.
j. Life is an ocean, fathom it.
k. Life is an opportunity, don’t miss it.
l. Life without love is desolate.
m. Life is a goldmine, exploit it.
n. Life is what you make it.
o. Life lies in optimism. Be a positive thinker.
p. Life is like a game of snakes and ladders; one faces many pitfalls before one reaches the top.
q. Life will be a pleasure, if you love your work.
r. Life without goals, is groping in darkness.
s. Life without trust is a life in turmoil.
t. Life is a journey; make it as pleasant as possible.
u. Life doesn’t mean bread alone.
v. Life is meaningful, only if there is a mission.
w. Life is enriched by good friendship.
x. Life doesn’t mean years alone: “IT IS THE LIFE IN THOSE YEARS”
y. Life is useful, if you contribute something that will outlive it.
z. Life lies in diversity, not in monotony.
by M. K. Soni
Life is an uphill battle, also an intriguing journey
a sojourner on fascinating trails of soul’s tourney
Life is a repertoire of good and bad, wins and losses
no matter the circumstances humans prevails the tosses
Life is not a lavish road of personal selfish indulgence
but kindly loving acts to each and everyone in accordance
Life is questing and thirsting serendipitous surprises
all defining golden moments that one covets as prizes
Life is a series of devastating trials and tribulations
that toughens the spirit, assurance of transformations
Life is a medley of loves, some unrequited some great
which all human hearts are buoyed with destined fate
Life is much drama sporadic times of ease and leisure
some events better forgotten other moments to treasure
Life is where we feel heights of joy and depths of sorrow
where it alters our attitudes and perspectives for tomorrow
Life is like a river, meandering stream or a gushing rapid
accept whatever destiny brings, the zest together the vapid
Life is the ultimate heartbeat and pulse of every soul
stay true to yourself and to God and you’ll feel whole
