What Life Means

a poem by Asha Gundecha

LIFE means a challenge
   said a brave man
LIFE means a dream
   said a drunkard
LIFE means a game of chairs
   said a politician
LIFE means banishing evil
   said a preacher
LIFE means a operation
   said a surgeon
LIFE means a character
   said a teacher
LIFE means a sacrifice
   said a woman
LIFE means a discipline
   said a civilian
LIFE means a suffering
   said a poor man
LIFE means not being atheist
   said a priest
LIFE is for living.
   I said to myself
LIFE is for peace
   said a dove
LIFE, lastly. is how we see it,
   and what we make of it.
