Geometry Of Life

Life when it begins to wane and ebb
In its wake invokes hordes of images web
Some sweet and some sour but for sure
A bagful of regrets big tiny obscure

The ripple of life as it dissipates and dies
Decreases radius n circumference area wise
Diameters shrink, tangents flying off all haywire
Lifeline of body n soul hanging by fragile wire!
 
Beating on doors of shaky life, come knocking
Numerous could’ve been and should’ve been
Gamut of whys wherefores you couldn’t wean
Raucously mocking not shocking, venting spleen

Finally facing all “I told you so” unsought advice galore
You realize you still don’t give a damn just like before
Life enjoyed, lived on owns terms makes you fight it more
Overcoming all odds, banishing deathly shadows on door
 
Amidst all dished cutting jibes, accepting only healing vibes
Ignoring well meant sermons diatribe, heeding soul prescribes
Still calling shots, lifting not again those you let wayside rot
Jeering faces ignored, still giving them not a hoot, nary a jot

Hourglass of life relentlessly releases its breath grain by grain
Realization sinks in that rhythm and rhyme of life they maintain
Take stock now of the sum total of your life’s losses and gains
Ebbing life sobers, robbing euphoria you can no longer retain

As the images move across the canvas of fading life
Peace engulfs having done heart’s desire as soul’s fife
Contentment moves in and takes over  life’s reins
No longer agonizing over perfidious bleeding veins!!!

Life when it begins to wane and ebb
In its wake invokes hordes of images web
Some sweet and some sour but for sure
A bagful of regrets big tiny obscure

and introduces you to a world of unimagined grandeur, possibility and joy.

Chinese Proverbs Sayings of Chinese Origin
Tragedy occurs when a human soul awakes and seeks,
 in suffering and pain, to free itself from crime, violence,
 infamy, even at the cost of life. The struggle is the
 tragedy – not defeat or death.
 – Whittaker Chambers American, Writer
Any existence deprived of freedom is a kind of death.
