Life is

I hurt! Not in pain like a toothache
Not a rose thorn in my finger
My pain is for the calamity in our precious Universe
Pain for the starving child, the cancer-ridden elder

The incarcerated, the deranged
The deformed, the sick baby

Come on, you who are alive
Life is beautiful, sensuous, loving
Life is your heartbeat for every tomorrow
Life is the Godliness, the passion and pain within

Life is a gift to nourish and bloom
Life is the joy of smelling nature’s roses
Life is the very you, in all manifestations
Each bite, each kiss, each touch to treasure

And beyond – life is happiness !
