The art of life

Where’s the boat of fate? To sail away to the land unknown

Where’s the strength and courage? To fight against the furious storm

The footsteps are too small and short. The journey is tortuous and long

The cup of life is too heavy to carry. The hands are too weak to hold


Where’s the home of heart? To stay for a life time and never leave

Where’s the desire and longing? To sooth the sadness and drive away emptiness

The tide is too swift to drown the beach. The benediction is slow to receive

The joy of life is simple and pure. The art of life is tough and bitter
