life



our life is such a joke,
yours and mine!

entwined with ironies
hopes, reality and despair,
past fail our conscious
destiny designs new trysts!

we try, we cry
we plead our greed
forfeit our future
our presence, our sense!

memoirs of pain
lingers through our day,
all for our dreams
for smiles we've weaved!

tears to bring a smile -
our life is such a joke!


This is my contribution to this week's 3WW (Three Word Wednesday)

Catvibe said...

Sawan, I wanted to come over here and say hello, and that I enjoyed your piece at Clarity. I thank you also for your comment on mine. I love this poem, it is so true, isn't it? First we cry, then we laugh at our tears, then we cry some more...circles of learning, a painful delight.

Margaret said...

Hi Sawan, thought I'd drop by ur blog.
Yes, our lives can be a joke a lot of the time, that's why we need to laugh as much as possible.
