I thought I’d make friends with life
So I asked her to introduce herself,
What did she do? ,How did she look?
And did she come with a rulebook?
I said to life,”will you always be my friend?”
She looked dazed with pale look on her face
She said she would love to be good to me
But then,how would I learn and be strong,said she.
I said to life,”Be a friend and walk along.”
She said,”I am always there in your sorrow and song”
I pleaded to life,”Why must you be rough?”
She replied,”Dont fret it dear,life is tough.”
Life said its upto us how we look at her
With smile and hope or with a mind full of fear ,
She said she is a journey with ups and downs
Milestones we conquer and sometimes shaky grounds.
Life said she is a teacher,she lets you choose,
Whether you follow the rules or let yourself loose
Life says nothing ,she only passes by
As you lie in the woods ,wondering why.
