Poems about Life

 

The Life Chant

CONCERNING THE LIFE, THE LOVE, THE TRUST

THE RIGHT, THE HEIGHT, THE PAST

THE SIGHT, THE MIGHT, THE DUST

THE FLIGHT, THE FIGHT, THE MUST

TO UNDERSTAND, LIVE AND DIE

THE AFTER, WHAT TO DENY

FOREVER FULL OF TRAGEDIES?

OUR LIVES ARE MADE ON ALWAYS THESE?

THE END, THE CRIES, THE PAIN

THE SUN, THE GROUND, THE RAIN

THE MAN, THE WOMAN, THE CHAIN

THE TIES, THE BOUND, THE FAME

THE CHOICE, CONFUSION, THE RESULTS

WITHIN THE LOCKS AND VAULTS

THE RIGHT AND WRONG INSULTS

THE JURY FOUND IN COURTS

THE JUDGEMENT, PRISON, FREE

ABOUNDS IN YOU AND ME

THE GOD, HIS SON, THE ONE

THIS PEACE, THE LIFE OF MAN.

My life

My life if like a whirlwind

Would spin and go around

It never takes direction

But only makes a sound

And if it's like a tree

It stands out in the sun

But if no water poured on me

My life would then be gone

If it is like a lake

Enclosed in my own reason

Surrounded like a man enclosed

Held himself imprisoned

If it is like the sea

It flows out everywhere

The places whether bad or good

Still is viewed that fair

If it is then a mountain

And climbers go to see

My life is like a show off then

Of every part of me

But I thanked my very God

My life is then compared

But still it hands the blessings pure

Those blessings he declared

And different life he gave

Of challenge and of pain

My God had made his promise true

Is victory I will gain.

-Pat-

 

Lazy

I was a lazy person once

But now I'll never be

I'll work more harder day by day

As the sun goes out my way

As wisdom speaks in proverbs say

To work like Ants so wise

They are the ones whom God is pleased

He saw before His eyes

If I am then to lay and sleep

And take a full great rest

The sun and moon will pass that deep

And harder will my test

And longing for the food I'll eat

I'll never get to feed

I may just wish and starve to death

Whoever takes the greed.

-Pat-

 

Let Him Shine on Us

One day a beggar stood by the side

A man was asked, the man didn't mind

And just when the beggar got off from his feet

He fell down of hunger, not because of sleep

One day a woman suffered a disease

She suffered a cancer, a pain hard to ease

The nurse who took care, didn't just mind

A week then just passed, the woman had died

One day a man was so down and sad

He thought the day was awful and bad

No one shared to just talk with him

And later he died, took his life within

If we are aware that these things had happened

We question ourselves, is 'He' in us shining?

To even just share the love then for others

But we're too busy, for us no one matters

That if we are busy try to think twice

That someone there needs, the love in His eyes

Because whatever we do to the rest of them

Is reflected to shine, in HIM once again.

Next Step

When youíll travel now

Donít start to think

That goodbyes would end

One star to blink

Nor it could dry up seas

And waters in the land

Wherein nothing left

Nor moisture in the sand

Sometimes we hate to say

Goodbye and thatís all

Our missions and our goals

Are all in Godís control

And we canít hold on to

For what our desires are for

We just have to let go

And step out of the door

Our endpoints may be near

Or sometimes could be far

But imagine not too much

Much farther than a star

Donít cease to walk through

Along the road

Shadows seen beside

May lead you cold

But stay much warmer

And seek the light

When thereís a shadow

A lightís in sight

Our walkís not boundless

We seek the truth

It all ends up with God

Where bears the fruit

And Iím not ending up

To have the journey with you

Weíll all walk together

Only God knew.

-Pat-

 

 

Everything Changes

A grass withers, the flowers fall

Ashes to ashes, the last final call

No one is seen, standing out there

Everything changes, this world so unclear

 

The world each day changes, phases of time

Wish we all catch it, wish all were mine

But if itís past late, time stood to take all

Everything changes, whether so big or small

 

Everything changes, reminds us once more

Nothing is left, no one can store

More than he could keep, once change arrives then

When everything changes, we know which of lifeís end.

-Pat-

 

 

Seeking the Truth

Seeking the truth is like a tree

Who feels the touch with things to see

That grows its leaves and flowers bud

With trunk that grows, a branch to add

To face the sun and take the rain

To feel the pressure, feel the pain

To bear a fruit and give some more

A tree can have, a tree can store

To give a shade, a lighter side

With smoothness shown that can abide

To lift its branches into the sky

A sign to praise the one up high

To have a sacrificed way of living

Much more of giving than of receiving

A man who tries to seek the truth

Is like a tree that bears good fruit

-Pat-

 

Dreams

If we try to reach our dreams today

And soar the skies we wish weíd stay

Thereís nothing impossible we can do

If we believe our dreams come true

 

Your faith is not just worthless thing

That lies beneath you deep within

It helps you grow each day you smile

With a different look and a different style

 

So when you dream, today with faith

Do not lose hope your dreams are great

In little dreams and little wishes

Though big and small they break in pieces

 

And little by little they come together

To gather themselves in summer or winter

And this I believe we all will fly

Weíll soar our dream...weíll reach the sky

-Pat-
