I am born to live,
And so living I am,
Every second I breathe,
Each moment I move ahead a step.
Not because,
I am born to live.
But because,
I want to live.
 
By understanding
The beauty of nature;
After tasting lots of pains,
A few sorrows,
Some embarrassments,
Some achievements,
And little bit problems,
I am living!
Not because,
I have to.
But because,
I want to!
 
For some,
Life is a beauty.
For some,
It is love.
For some,
It is responsibility;
And for others,
It is pain.
But for me,
Life is living!
Art of living!
Art of smiling!
Art of inspiring!
 
Every moment,
I am in love with my life.
Every minute,
This love is strengthened.
Every hour,
It teaches me a new lesson!
Not because,
I am born to live.
Not because,
I am living.
Not because,
I have to.
But because,
I want to live.
Because it is my life!
 
After God,
I am the owner.
I am the director.
And I am the leader,
Of my world! My life!
I am the achiever! Or I can be!
Then how can I let my life go?
How can I loose,
A single chance to smile?
Why should I opt to exile?
When God has given
Me the chance to smile?
 
Life is mine!
God is mine!
Not just because,
I am living.
But because,
I want to.
I know!
The world is an illusion.
There are a lot of repulsions.
Everyone wants perfection.
Hence there are frustrations,
Distractions,
And the worst-
Depressions!!
 
This world is unfair.
But here only,
We all have to live!
we can't move anywhere else.
Don't expect!
Don't cry!
Don't ever dare to,
Lose a single chance to smile!
 
I Understand,
Sometimes, life is more painful
Than the never recovering wounds.
Sometimes, There lies darkness everywhere.
And eyes keep searching for light.
Though only for a while!
Sometimes, There seems to be only land.
But we shouldn't forget.
Below the land,
There lies water
And on it there survives Greenery!!
