Life


Life

Before you can get a life, you have to get life.
If you fail to understand the essence of what life is,
you are doomed to be a mere spectator,
and never a participant.
Many a person have admired a beautiful gown,
but a fewer number have realised their designs
and seen them paraded by even a high school model.
Many a person have lost themselves in the pages of a great novel,
but, in comparison, a few have written down their thoughts
and left them for another generation.
The young are quick to taunt the old to get a life,
yet they are not the creators of great poetry, or music,
they did not set the records, or fight the wars that gave us peace,
they did not balance incomes and expenditures,
they are merely users of our universe
and of those who left us theirs.
