Goal of life

I simply wonder why we lack
People who laugh..
People who live..

I also wonder why the heck
People feign friendship..
People speak lies.

As we grow from three to thirty
Time goes on..
Pressure mounts on..

Hard to believe that all were once
Children who played,
Ones who forgave.

Why should the child in us so vanish
The Smile in us fades,
The truth degrades..

Why should the childishness be banished
To the depths of the soul,
In life, Is that our goal?


To survive without living?

  1. To seek, to discover
    To fight and recover
    To analyse and and reduce
    To love and reproduce.

    To sing and enjoy
    To weep and to worry
    Sometimes purpose we seek
    At othertimes we wander.

    LIfe is to live brother,
    Life is to live
    And if you find ways to make yours better
    Then is bliss

  2. Ur own work, that?? Cool man.


    refined stuff.. :)


    Wonder where they went, those real folk,
    They, who laugh..
    They, who live..

    Where did they come in, these middle folk,
    They feign friendship..
    They speak lies.

    As we grow from three to thirty
    The pressure mounts on..
    The pleasure is gone..

    Hard to believe that we all were once
    Children who played,
    Ones who forgave.

    Why should the child in us so vanish
    The Smile in us fades,
    The truth degrades..

    Why should the childishness be banished
    To the depths of the soul,
    In life, Is that our goal?

  3. We live on to accept things as they come by,
    Seeing changes as they pass us by.

    We live when we are three,
    Pretending to be big people,
    Pretending to be free
    But reality strikes us when we want that costly toy-
    Which give way to vain tantrums.

    We live when we are thirty,
    Earning the power to buy the toy,
    But losing the desire!

    Now we yearn for childhood,
    Back then we yearned for adulthood.

    But though in words we may yearn,
    All we do is strive to earn
    More and more and more.

    Maybe then one day we will look back and think wish I was thirty again and wish I did more than earn!
