Life is a Song

Life looks the same to everyone

But it could not be so, as everyone is a different filter,

But it has a generic quality of a song,

Which we try to hide as we can’t understand it.


What do birthdays mean?

Are they the celebration of life or the day?

But as life is a celebration so why celebrate it,

The world has got it all wrong.


Life is a gushing torrent,

Don’t turn it into an accounting ledger,

Or a sermon delivered from a mountaintop,

Feel its flow leave its meaning to dumb skulls.
