The Battles of Life


If running away from life

could ease away the strife

I would have gone to Himalayas,

or to Kanyakumari.

But life makes you face

its turmoil and vicissitudes.

Where running away is not

the rule of the game

and problems have to be fought

with courage and fortitude.

But at times, I feel weak

Vulnerable and defenseless,

in front of life so impervious

that with cruelty and  brutality

enjoys watching the sap of life

ebb drop by drop

by continuous and endless strife.

To win a battle with dharma

and morality

in a world where such concepts

seem to have vanished,

nowhere to be found

I like a die hard optimist

Still fight the life

with viciousness and spite.
