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"
Saumya,
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.
Blessings,
Kathy

A thought-provoking piece with some well-placed metaphors. The punctuation is a bit distracting, but overall this is a good poem!

i disagree with Eileen here. i think that the first stanza works perfectly as an intro to the entire train of thought. i do agree with her that the poem triggers some deep thought and it looks at the value and rigors of life in some refreshing and in some familiar ways. all in all, i would consider this a very good write!

Interesting take on journey of life. The only thing I noticed is that the first stanza does not match the rest of the poem. I might suggest a stanza where you tie the storms in with the rest of the poem. Your poem triggered some great thoughts. Eileen
