As I ponder, while I wonder,
I think of here and yonder,
There’s too much of strife,
In this truth called Life.

A pain that exists,
A fear that persists,
A wave that subsists,
An emotion that resists.

There is arrested entertainment,
There is concocted detainment,
There is a being in contentment
With a brilliant predicament…

As I ponder, while I wonder,
I think of here and yonder,
There’s too much of strife,
In this truth called Life.



 In any moment of decision,
The best thing you can do is the right thing,
The next-best thing is the wrong thing,
And the worst thing you can do is nothing.
- Theodore Roosevelt

Poet deVine,
Thanks for reading this one...

Seems like I am finally catching up on my postings and checking out, if I have not yet thanked anyone in particular. I am sorry for being so rude and not replying your words earlier.

Regards,
Sudhir.

Mmmm well said. Each day I hope that nothing or anybody is going to harm my child, it's unfortunately a tough environment we live in these days.

"There is a being in contentment
With a brilliant predicament…"

this sounds like a win-lose situation...sometimes I resemble this!  

Well done, Sudhir, enjoyed!

All you generous and beautiful people.

I am raised to the skies with all your praises. Am I worthy of all this, I ask myself???

Thanks to each one of you from the heart...
