Oh Life...Bitter & sweet!

Oh life..how bitter & sweet..

Life has always been hard - very hard!

If it is not for lack of resources,

It could be due to ill-health -

Family troubles - private matters,

Social malaise or work place.

However, in between the worries and troubles,

It would suffice to say,

There are fleeting moments of absolute joy.

You are easily moved to tears

When you know there is someone who cares.

That makes life worthwhile

Enduring torturous insufferable hardship,

As you may all the way down the line.
