The rise and fall of life's notes



Take life for an escalator

Go both through its ups

and downs

Ride it like on an elevator

Expect both smiles and

frowns.



Take life for a suspense

novel

you and I unaware what

the next day will hold

Meditate and muse, or

this book of life just

peruse

Pore over it to watch

life's mysteries unfold.



Take life for the open sea

But pray drown not

yourself in it

lest you lose sight of

God's shore

and thereby lose all

spiritual wit.



Take life for a candle

let its glow illumine

others too

and in each and every of

its flicker

Try finding a hint or clue



Each soul's life unique as

mazes of one's

thumbprint

And usually for many

life's quite an uphill battle

At times sweet as

molasses, at times bitter

as mint

and life's roller coaster

may shake you like a rattle.



Life tis like the rise and

fall of musical notes

Consoling to find people

in the same boats

Up and down, like on a violin

Sometimes you lose,

sometime you win.

We are better off

if we commit less sin



Thus ponder over your

life and reflect

how good you've been

to it

and not just how it's

been treating you.

Veer around the pit, and

keep your path lit

for darkness of the soul

is for you unfit.



Take it in its stride even if it's a bittersweet life

Downhill's a joy ride, uphill has to be strife
