Shuttling Life

a poem by Ramesh T A

Waves of woes lulling on the ocean of life, like all
Sail I to the shore seeing the circling search light
As if I have woken up unfortunately in the dark night!

Living we die and dying we live in the world;
Like the ant caught between the fire and the flood
We shuttle between war and truce in life!

Does life mean eternal shuttle between peace and chaos?
The irony of life is such that nobody can say what’s next;
That is the fate of man no one can set right yet!

Expected things won’t happen at the expected time;
But at the unexpected time God restores all for the better
And makes His presence known through miracles rare!

Like ecological balance Nature maintains man manages all;
But the end of man, Nature and Universe lies in God’s hand!
