Live, Laugh and Love

a poem by Venkatesan P

Lean! for the world is slippery under your feet,
A hope, a prop is necessary.
Live! for there is no other choice, however one may wish;
A month, a year or a weary hundred you cannot say.
Laugh! for weeping dispels no shadows dark
While a ripple is a lovely sight to behold
Love! Oh Love! Even if for a while and fated to lose;
For, a heartful of love is the end all of life.
