Life’s Wonders

Life is a roulette
it keeps rolling
the ball stops
at unexpected numbers most times
but life works wonder for livers
it is intriguing how it unfolds unto us
weaving its magic webs around us

Things go wrong
our worlds come crushing down
things go right
our spirits are lifted beyond our expectations
sometimes hatred fills our hearts
making rational thinking impossible
finding hatred everywhere
even in the genuine smiles of people
sometimes we find love in unexpected places
during unexpected moments in life

A friend once said, “Life is a sample
we learn by testing it”
and I, ‘Life is a question
every second we live
we search for answers
from the universe
people around us
mostly from within ourselves”

Looking down and up into the darkness
we tried to justify ourselves
both of us are justifiable
we will be tested
we will be answered with time

Life isn’t what we think of it
but what we make of it
this world has a place for you
as it has for a place for me
we are laughing today
crying tomorrow

We spend a life time
trying to understand our being
looking for love
and happiness
one day
out of the blue
we meet someone
in a flash of moment
shows us the reasons of our being
without even staying forever with us
showers us with love
what we feel at that moment
is real happiness
those rare moments in life
make up
for all the lost time
which shall lasts forever
life works out well

  1. I ( just love your poems…I keep reading them and thinking…how could you be new to this…your poems have such beauty and vivid imagery that I find just wonderful…I haven’t done this very long either (several months now…talked into it by a friend)…I’m still learning…for example..some people have said “I have an award for you”…but alas I don’t really know how to retrieve them…so I just keep on writing…perhaps we will learn this task together. Keep writing these wonderful poems…I love reading them.
