Truth about life


image from http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/


Life is a journey
That is the truth
Feels like a tourney
But no one can lose

Life is an illusion
That is the truth
A temporary vision
Like passing youth

Life is a lesson
That is the truth
Each soul's mission
A path to smooth

Life is a moment 
In time and space
A way we have chosen
And blessed by His grace

  5. This poem leaves me feeling that truth cannot really be held at all, it is a journey, illusion, lesson, moment, don't squander it.

    1. Thanks Robyn. That comes from the Hindu philosophy that everything we know is actually maya or illusion.
