Life covers a lot of ground ....

There are moments to face the truth ...
and then there are moments to escape its reach ...
There are moments to explore and ponder ....
and there are those when ignorance is sheer bliss...
There are moments when guilt becomes desirable ..
and moments when pain brings an exquisite relief ...
There are moments when loneliness transcends all reality ...
and those when affection starts to reek....

There are moments to go out and touch the horizon..
and those when it's best to hide and weep ...
There are moments when sunshine is pure and delightful,
And then there are those when thundering grey skies bring their own sense of peace,
There are moments when silence fails to bring any solace,
and those when tranquility is found in the midsts of raging shrieks....

There are moments when bitterness seems more appropriate,
and those when all remorse is lost,
there are moments when experience is a bad teacher,
and those when compassion leaves you distraught....
There are moments of complete despair
that somehow fail to leave a mark,
and then there are little moments of tenderness,
that somehow end up making a man fall apart.

There are moments when power is fraught with helplessness,
and then there are those when only faith holds a soul afloat,
There are moments when symphonies dont carry far enough,
and then there are those when the whole world...
can hear a single note.

with this poem, you have touched undefined depths...anyone who has not stopped to look life in the face and feel the harshness or the tenderness, will never know the meaning of these words beyond a poetic comprehension. And for anyone who has FELT what it is like to live..to fall..n then to get up once again, will find his life put into words before him...this is one of ur best works...
unbeatable !
