Life consists not simply in what heredity and environment do to us but in what we make out of what they do to us.

Life Is Not...

Life is not Facebook that can accommodate 5000 friends
Life is not Google that can search sites to questions you are seeking with
Life is more than your notebook, you PC or the internet
Life is not the phone, the tablet or any modern gadget
And life is not the noise, the song, or the music being played

Life is more than the fast food chain that can give your order instantly
Satiate your hunger, your delight and your cravings.
Life is more than the supermarket or the neighborhood grocery.
Life is more than the physical foods or the clothes or any raiment
There’s more to life than all these things!

Life is not the can of soda that can quench your thirst
Life is not the cigarette which you presume can relieve your stress
Life is not the beer that gives a minute of forgetfulness
Life is not the ashtray or the garbage where you dump your waste
Life is more than merry making, earthly pleasure, or worldly happiness

Life is not the chocolates, cup of coffee or a mug of tea
Life is more than the jewelries or your accessories
Life is not a toilet where you visit to defecate
Life is more than the bar you go to escape life’s regrets
and life is not the pill that frees you for an hour of anxieties.

Life is not the house, the car, the money or the vacation!
Life is not the party, the extravagance, and the frivolities
So don’t be in despair you cannot get all of these or these were taken away
Don’t be contemptuous to your dear ones if they cannot give you these
There’s more to life than all of these

Life Is Not a Ride That Glides

Ceasing feasting that increased,
A decreasing of most things...
Meant to many giving up false bling!
And showy shining flashing flings.

Lucky people who've striked out,
From a crowning top that slipped to drop...
Have come to a screeching stop.
With designer boots now knocking rocks.

But life is not a ride that glides.
And those that recognize this,
Have not gone into tantrums.
Or thrown fits.

Life is not a ride that slides into a glide.
Some rumps fall onto bumps that stump.
With a struggle not for chumps,
That disguises getting over humps.

Lucky people who've striked out,
From a crowning top that slipped to drop...
Have come to a screeching stop.
With designer boots now knocking rocks.

Ceasing feasting that increased,
A decreasing of most things...
Meant to many giving up false bling!
And showy shining flashing flings.

But life is not a ride that glides.
And those that recognize this,
Have not gone into tantrums.
Or thrown fits.

No life is not a ride that slides into a glide.
Some rumps fall onto bumps that stump.
With a struggle not for chumps,
That disguises getting over humps.

Life is not a ride that slides into a glide.
Some rumps hit a bump that stumps...
And many get up and out of those dumps!

Life is not a ride that slides into a glide.
Some rumps hit a bump that stumps...
And many get up and out of those dumps!

Life is not a ride that slides into a glide.
Some rumps hit a bump that stumps...
And many get up and out of those dumps!

Life is not a ride that glides from side to side.
Some rumps hit a bump that stumps...
And many get up and out of those dumps!

They may try to sensor my poetry

They may try to sensor my poetry,
may classify it as unwanted literature,
not true to political correctness,
it may be seen as a threat to the country,
they may throw it away as rubbish
in the nearest bin

but I will write about beauty, love
help people dream
and nothing will stop me
to write about atrocities,
about suppression, about bombs
exploding in the street,
about war and even jails

and as long as the precipice is there
I will be writing about it as well,
as life does not have only
beautiful, peaceful
and religious things to tell
but sometimes its own particular kind of hell.

Come To Me

There's a lizard on my window,
There's a moon above Cassis
There's a menu in my room that can't be read
I am burned, broke and legless on pastis
And tonight you're all I really miss or need
There's a band down the street
Singing high and sweet
But I can't make out a word they say
"Tout le monde de besoin d'amour"
Won't you come to me, come to me
Won't you come to me
There's a map inside my pocket,
But I don't know where I'll go
I'm pulled in all directions by the moon
I am lost, free, exhausted and alive
And you been on my mind all afternoon
But the lines are always blocked
And the operators talk
But I can't make out a word they say
"Tout le monde de besoin d'amour"
Won't you come to me, come to me
Won't you come to me

Until You Completely Understand What I'm Going Through, Don't Tell Me My Life Is Not Stressful

how can you look at my life,
and just judge it,
yes i do have stuff going on in my life,
it not as transparent,
but it's there,
i'm reminded by the nightmare,
by the body flashbacks,
don't tell me i don't have much,
i battle them everyday,
but when i do,
it behind close doors,
i guess i hide my problems well,
if you can't tell what it is,
i'm really going through,
i guess im doing a dang good job,
dealing with it and handling it,
if you just don't know,
at times i don't have a choice,
i have to push my feelings aside,
just to deal with what going on,
and when i get back to them,
they coming back harder,
and alot more crazier,
i can't always change what i want,
even though i have to deal,
don't tell me,
that my stresses are nothing,
compared to yours,
let me see you walk a mile,
in my shoes and you tell me,
how it feels to deal with baggage,
that is not so easy,
to just toss to the side,
it's a never ending battle,
that seems to only get harder,
the more i begin to heal,
but healing is the only way,
i can be at peace,
it won't be the end of it,
it just means,
all of what was done to me,
all this hurt and anger,
that i feel,
will stop being so strong,
yeah, i'm waiting for that day,
but i'm still manage to push through,
even if it means i'm crawling,
past the finish line.

Life Is Not what One Wishes

Ask the guru, ask the saint
Ask the living, ask the dead
Life is not what one wishes
Whether one wanted it or not
It is what you lived
Keep hoping for the best
You get it or not
Nobody knows

A life need not teach

A life need not teach
We have to run and reach

What should be our attitude?
More respectful with gratitude

What more to observe?
Serve and then deserve

Not to bend knee and pray
To feel free and obey

Give and take similar way
Touch the feet firmly and stay

You Can Not Tell Me What It Takes

You have no idea what being treated demeanly means.
Or what being the victim of obscenities can do to someone,
On a mission to achieve with bleeding done.

And until you have been in a position to experience pain,
With others caring less how you felt.
You can not tell me what it takes to live my life.

The life is not as good.....

The life is not as good as it used to be,
It has lost its fair and natural glee,
Love and affection has left the scene,
For them nobody seems to be keen,
Magnanimity has lost its simple way,
What else is there for us to say?
There are few days in this inn to stay,
Spread the message of love come what may.

Life and Dreams

When life and dreams collide I pray
First things first straightens my path
When God is not first idols reign
Our own vanity rains our wrath
The pearl of great price must rule
Emotions need a guide that’s true

Life consists not in abundance of things
We are temporal heading for eternal love
Do you want the peace that God brings?
We must seek the high things above
Dreams are meant to be stepping-stones
When I carry my cross love leads me home

Life and dreams will fully join in eternity

Life Is Not All Candy Canes And Butterflies

Life is not all candy canes and butterflies. We have a little fun, but in the end everybody dies. Everyday I put on a smile, to hide the emotion inside. When underneath it all, my heart is ripped open wide. Screwing things up, feels like it's becoming a skill. I just want things to settle, I want my troubles to stand still. I find things to help, to cover up the pain. I'll try anything just to feel a little sane. I did this to myself, I am the one to blame. Lifes not so fun to me, it feels like a sick game. Because life is not all candy canes and butterflies. We have a little fun, but in the end everybody dies.

Your Life May Not Be Considered Terrific

No matter what one sees,
To compare with belief...
You alone can conceive with a receiving,
What it is in your life...
Made with those decisons,
For you is right and is liked.

Your life may not be considered terrific,
By those critics with their 'standards' picking it apart.
But it is 'your' life to live.
With a living of it in the way you like.
And if it isn't...
You will be the one to decide,
What for you is significantly sufficient.
With a living of it honestly.
And truth in your heart.

No matter what one sees,
To compare with belief...
Your life is yours!
Not anyone else's to oversee.
Or convince with their perceptions,
How one should live.
And in which way lived one's life should be.

Oh...
How I wish to hear you say to them,
Where and what on you they can kiss!

Life's Not Always Fair

Life is the thing that all people have the right to,
But not all people have it the way they want it.
People take life for granted,
There's suicide, and homicide, People killing other people.
One thing I have learned is...
Life's not always fair, So deal with it.
Some people live and some people die,
Death is not always the answer.
The angels come down,
They take you away,
To what you think is the better place to be,
But you miss them...Family, friends, and being THERE!
You never realize what you have until it's gone,
Once it's gone then you realize what has really happened.
You cry and cry, You want to DIE!
People need to realize that, Life's not always fair
Don't die! Live life to the fullest!
And you will see, It can only get better.
No matter how bad things look,
Just realize one thing...LIFE'S NOT ALWAYS FAIR!

Life Is Not Measured By Its Length

i know you know that life is not measured by its length
or its width
lest it simply becomes a piece of
cube
a matter of furniture
or even a block of wood
lest it becomes so ordinary

with a depth that you can measure
so easily

in truth life has nothing to do with numbers
first, second,
one, two and three and there you claim that you have life

life is quality my dear
it is giving your best shot
giving up
life for a reason for a cause for those you value most
for those you love

and then when all the reasons are lost
when all your loved ones left you
when there is nothing greater
to believe
when nothing is worth living anymore

i will ask you: where can life be?
there is none anymore

it has become a piece of junk
worth throwing
in your garbage can
or keeping it in dusty garage or the mezzanine
always hoping that someday
it may still be worth the stay

What is Life

What is life?
Who knows the true definition?
Is life everything that you want you gets?
If life a bowl of gravy and a bucket of biscuits?
Is life just one good time?
What is life?
Life is not knowing exactly what it is you want
Life is wanting to take it away but you can't because you cherish it too much
Life is being confused
Life is at times being angry and wanting to cry
Life is crying for no reason and wondering why
Life is finding love only to have it taken away
Life is allowing your heart to go astray only for it to be broken within a single day
What is life to me?
right now I can't tell
my life is sporadic
up today and down tomorrow
sometimes there's smiles, sometimes there's sorrow
my life is thinking you've got it only to find out that it was never there
my life is stressful for reasons that don't need to be
these reasons I still cannot see
What is life?
Can you tell me?

The Poor Know manythings what the rich may not know..

Plenty of food on the table,
plenty of restaurants that serve,
plenty of appetite that we have,
Eat and wash it with drinks soft and hard,
come back home and sleep on the bed,
middle of the night, start the burbs,
then lie down to have the sleep,
again, burps, burps with rolling gas,
sometimes hiccups accompany and rocks,
look for the antacid in the shelves,
in the drawer and kitchen cabinets,
if find a sachet or a bottle,
that seems to be a God,
mix it with water and gulp it,
slowly the stomach is quietened,
rumbles not heard, the gas is not out,
the sleep arrives and we sleep..
A poor man who has no food,
may sleep silently in trance.
A poor man who has no comfort,
may not feel anything uncomfortable.
Those who know the comfort,
can differentiate the difference,
those who are poor and ill,
are comfortable with these evils.
as they know not meaning for good life,
as they are not aware of,
what they have to strive.

So Does Everybody Else, Only Not So Much

O all ye exorcizers come and exorcize now, and ye clergymen draw nigh and clerge,
For I wish to be purged of an urge.
It is an irksome urge, compounded of nettles and glue,
And it is turning all my friends back into acquaintances, and all my acquaintances into people who look the other way when I heave into view.

It is an indication that my mental buttery is butterless and my mental larder lardless,
And it consists not of "Stop me if you've heard this one," but of "I know you've heard this one because I told it to you myself, but I'm going to tell it to you again regardless..."

And what really turns my corpuscles to ice,
I carry around clippings and read them to people twice.
And I know what I am doing while I am doing it and I don't want to do it but I can't help doing it and I am just another Ancient Mariner,
And the prospects for my future social life couldn't possibly be barrener.
Did I tell you that the prospects for my future social life couldn't be barrener?

Life is not worth

Did someone say life is not worth to live?
Without dishonest means it is difficult to survive?
Not possible or any steps to revive,
So forget about means and connive,

Why to worry when everybody live same way,
Why I concentrate more and attention pay,
Why I care in matters where I have no say?
So simply I differ and uncaringly lay,

Why to worry about another world,
When no one has seen it and definite word,
All fear about Almighty with praying O, lord,
I can stand aloof in corner and afford,

Neither do I wish to swim together,
Nor do I care to sink and bother,
I search the ways for happiness further,
Can any one say my efforts may wither?

I still firmly believe in efforts,
All ships may not land in ports,
Nothing can succeed without any support,
Not with blessing alone or prayers report,

With smooth sailing there is no problem,
With sinking of ship passing only blame,
Why not we think and share also claim?
This is not my way of thinking and not the aim,

I think life is beautiful and thousand times worth,
No blame games and no ideas forth,
Success or failure face of the both,
Only we fail to see in cloth.

Life Is Not Chosen

Life is not at all chosen
It is thrust and forced upon
Only parents prayed for our birth
But someone else is gunning for our death

Democracy or any other system is total failure
Our life is unsecured and precious no more
For a few notorious souls we are simply crushed
Some to the gallows and some in the dungeons pushed

We shall dare not to rise in revolt
To be poor and helpless is only our fault
Who ever comes in power may use same stick!
Nothing else is important than to torture and pick

Human rights violation is order of the day
Only mighty rule and held the sway
Even the people who stand for liberty
Express helplessness, apathy, neglect and pity

Don’t test our patience for a long
One day you may be proving wrong
Nothing may come to your rescue
Only destruction and deaths may be open to view

Human beings are not meant to be slaughtered
They have built dams and river water altered
Many empires have been razed to ground
Not a single sign is likely to be found

Beware! Still time is left to come to sense
Hand over the power peacefully in your presence
Many human lives have been unnecessarily lost
You will loose the power even at tremendous cost

We are peace loving and still care
All living beings are ready to spare
No blood shed for power transition
People are supreme in any composition

We will not remain starved for silly reasons
System has to be changed with honest persons
If no bread can be secured for helpless and poor
They should be forced up on to flee or shown the door

Rule of land and people must prevail
There is should be no deception with tail
No cheating can now be tolerated
Liberty and freedom must remain co-related

Life is not

Life is not what you think and it seems
It is not trimmed in rhymes and themes
How can you call it life even when completely ignored?
How a sleep can be called sound when not snored?

You are helpless and powerless as goat
You may travel in it like as if on boat
The powerful wind may pull you towards disaster
You should be able to control it as master

You are completely dead in absence of strong will
Any unwanted thoughts may enter mind and kill
You will live thousand deaths in single life
It is double edged weapon like knife

Self dependence is what you call it is like volcano
All desires under control even if burning like inferno
If you become slave of in your home as helpless and prisoner
You will dig your own grave later or sooner

Mind it and bear in life that no one supports weak
No one prefers and walks along if you succumb and not speak
Everybody may prefer to pray rising sun
You have to care and nurture severe burns

It comes to standstill when not infused
It will stagnate when lesson is refused
It is learning and continuous process
Even if denied completely with access

If you take it as challenge then it is race
If you think it is burden then it is bad phase
If you think it as mystery then it is darkness
No way left to come out of it and to be lost without any trace

It may have same rainbow pattern
All colors signified with “U” turns
Who knows what color may choose or suit?
Nose dive with failures in long pursuit

It makes you to laugh and cry
Still it is adventurous and enterprising to try
It may have dry and spring seasons too
You must seize it with and sail through

You may not avail it next time in future
Everything must be taken care of and secured
Who knows what will be in offing next moment?
You will be left with no time to resent

Have different angle and logical conclusion
Even though it may be full of questions
We are not here to settle the score
But at the same time can not ignore

You are master of your destiny
It requires no explanation or testimony
You make dive and go deep in the bottom
All treasure will be yours and success will be missed seldom
