Life

Life

A Poem by Mrudula Rani
"

All life is an experiment! The more experiments you make the bette. - Ralph Waldo Emerson.

"
Life is breathing
Inhale and Exhale
Days, nights, months
Years and years.
All of the hours
Even when it feels impossible,
without an exception breath
For the option will be the death.

Living is gaining experiences,
Whether relish them or not.
When I look back
I do see the bright spots,
And happy moments,
Good times, and
The nightmares
That came true,
I lived them through
I was left bruised,
and broken.
Time mended, and
Threw me back
Into the rink
With a wicked grin!

The sky did not fall
When my heart broke
more then once,
Even the choices
I made after the failures
Were not wise,
The earth did not stop
Spinning around the sun
When I lost special some one.

Darkness won't fill the world
When I am gone
Sun will rise and set,as he has done
Before, now and again
as if nothing matters, soon
I will be no more than
a memory of some one.

Most of all, I love the entire stanza that starts with this: "Living is gaining experiences, . . . " . . . I love the way you write in such a conversational, straightforward way, yet your meaning is deep & philosophical . . . enjoyable contrast between style & meaning. I very much agree with your overall statement. Having grown up on a farm, butchering animals to eat, having many pets over the years that eventually die, & now that I'm older, friends my age are already dying! You've given this the proper amount of attention, acknowledging the sadness, but being more focused on the reality of how soon many of these lost loves are forgotten. Once in awhile, there's a longterm devotion that you never forget, tho! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Losing someone is like losing your breath. It wrings out energy like a sponge and it takes so long to get back to normal. But the memories are always there.

Well done, Mrudula.

Sentiment reciprocated.........
Wouldn't it be great if you could pop back in time and fix all the bad parts of your life?
But if there weren't any bad parts, you definitely haven't lived.
Life is still the greatest journey ever. You can't write it. Cos you don't know the ending.

Thank you for your kind words.
I guess that just being a good memory for someone after we are gone is all we can hope for. I appreciate you writing your inner most thoughts on life and death and realize you are more than you know. CD

Thank you CD for the beautiful words .
Your words carry so much joy and so much sorrow; all that is life. And now, now in these moments, you are light and pour your light through every word of you. Tão linda ... a vida é um maravilhoso milagre para respirar todos os dias. Um grande abraço.
