The Journey Of Life...

The Journey Of Life...

A Poem by Saumya

just a simple attempt to vividly look towards life...

Have you trailed through, the
storms of life..?
If no, then i will  take you there,
in the meanwhile..!

It is a journey, of infinite miles,
but  starts with a single step,
that will take you to that
world ahead..!

so, come out of your room
or house,
and get in a garden,
near your house....

Look at the beauty, over there,
observe everything deeply there......

now, if you see a butterfly,
and get that lovely smile on your face,
I'll  simply smile and tell you that,
this is how, we meet friends in our life;
who make our lives, full of surprise..!!

Now step towards a place, with
high mountains, and look at them,
this is the height, at which our aims lie,
but remember,
you always have, one way,
or the other, to reach there,
it may be  risky, and harsh,
but one day, it will lead
you to the top...!

Now, come to a place,
where needy live;
and intensely see a poor child,
I bet, you'll clearly understand,
what is  being deprived;
see their faces, and health,
and you'll know,
what is hell..!!
and this is why, we really need to help........

Now, step back to that garden,
and see if there's a rose plant;
forget every thing for a while,
and sit there, with a keen understanding,
as, here, I'll tell you something, reallly interesting,..!

first look at the stem,
long and green,
this resembles the passage of life, for
we human beings....!!
then look at the thorns,
these are  like those obstacles,
we face in life..!!
now, finally look at the flower so bright,
which is the grand result of, HOPE, STRUGGGLE, and strive...
these are the things, that literally make the flower  .....bright...!!!

And this is the process,
which we call as  LIFE.....!!
which is a journey,
of endless miles,
but really filled with delight,
which i hope,
you really enjoyed...!!!

"The Journey Of Life"
The message which was real for me in reading this poem was 'stop and smell the roses.' The paddling speed at which our thoughts twirl is not conductive to pondering and finding appreciation in the day to day blessings that are all around us. The above words were an encouragement to do so, to be still and soak up good things.

Wow, simply amazing... You could express yourself so lively, that I actually could imagine myself on those places you mentioned.
I like how you empathize on the things that people usually don't care or pay attention, like the flower or the butterfly, everybody's so damn busy or stressed to stop for a while to admire the beauty around them

Well written. Brimming with conviction apreciation of life's blessings. I never feel bad about being really terrible at mathematics; because every time I count my blessings I always manage to find one extra.

It is the journey not the destination of it after all is it not? For how far we travel we seem to make the best of it when we meet people around us that inspire us! After such inspirations we breath in aspirations that begin to exhilarate us into great heights and the cosmic planes of our worldly love for life itself! It's a beautiful guide to our galactic journey in this small world we live in :)

Well penned and wise words. We do need to step away and truly look at the life happening all around us.

The theme is inspirational once more...the imagery of the garden plays a bit different here...from the others of your work...good to read you...please next time give me one every couple of day to read...I do not mind giving my reviews...but the topics of your work is based on a certain theme...and that's fine...because that's who you are as a writer...I hope the advice helps promote you to write even more pieces and enhance the way you look into the lines and convey them to the reader...
