Ramblings of a Thoughtful Mind

Every minute of every day we learn
From all we choose with caution,
Stronger to face the world and life
Wiser to not be scared of oblivion.

Death indeed is an unknown exploration 
The kingdom of heaven or bottomless chasm;
Life is but the one big chance we get
Live it and enjoy; ignore and die every day.

As I see more of life, growing up is harder
With each sunset my heart grows colder,
Innocence was a virtue best as a kid
Aging I see, the world grows faker.

It's in friends we keep our faith
One wrong move and hope fails,
Trust of people be kept a little close
And we live to see one day more.

PS: Some random thoughts led me to try writing poetry for the first time last night. I am not sure if the lines make much sense, but look forward to your comments.

  3. Just adding a continuation... He He...

    The more we grow the smaller the fraction
    a day occupies in our fast life
    The newness, excitement, the willingness
    to live, and hope no more thrive
    From our playmates, friend may mean close
    people who with us can play
    Still hopes that things don't change and
    a few people make our day
