QUEST OF LIFE

QUEST OF LIFE

A Poem by Nishant Gupta
"

this is about how one neglects his life ,pondering about this precious gift of nature unnecessarily

"
life is a cozy bed
then why am I always sad?
have I gone mad
or simply just trapped.
I don't know where to head 
when it has no trough or crest.


sometimes I do this, sometimes I do that
am I a cat or a rat?
to quest it out, I have sat
is it  a misconcept or a fact?

one day I met two princeton
one was sodium and other was krypton
the former showed me the bright new dawn
unfortunately I couldn't grasp it on
later I realised the tone
and my life rocked on..!! 
 
I know you too are in a trauma 
wondering about the life drama
the lesson is not to ponder
but to enjoy the wonder
because life is a cozy bed
& you always have to step ahead.

Hey guys! sorry for ur inconvenience in reading the poem , so to rectify my mistake here is the explanation to the poem.
1. Life is such a warm and comfortable bed then why i am not happy ?.Has something gone wrong with me or i have been trapped in this puzzling life. I don't know what to do next when this life neither has a start (trough) nor an end(crest).
2.In this life race I am confused about my job,positions etc and then i compare myself with a cat or a rat that is question myself whether i am dominating and doing what i wish to do or just being carried away by the outside world. So, finally i have sat to analyse the situation and to find out if it happens to me only.
3.The day,when i had a dialogue with the almighty Lord brought a turning point in me He introduced me to the two different souls of mine that is sodium(reactive) and krypton(non reactive). The reactive soul taught me (krypton) the art to live, but being narrow minded I couldn't get the point but later when i gave it a deep thought i came across the real scenario of life.
As you already know , the motto of last stanza is to introduce the readers with the correct way of leading a life.

I will be honest with you. The idea behind this piece is deep but I found that as I read along it started becoming tedious ergo my advice would be to work on it some more and cut out some unnecessary wording.
All in all i liked it. Keep the fire burning

Unusual poem,liked the use of quest as a verb.

Well this is a really good poem. I do believe sometimes life is puzzling and that we have to sometimes take pieces out and put others in. We have to have conversations with God because sometimes we need to have a conversation with a higher power.

I must admit that I didn't really understand that poem without your note. But now seeing all the metaphors and the journey the poem takes, it is truly wonderful to see.
