A crust of bread and a corner to sleep
A minute to smile and an hour to weep!

A pint of joy and loads of trouble
Little laugh and the mourns come double!

Bit of love and a bunch of haters
Joy that turns to sorrow by traitors!

When a true love that comes your way
Then the loneliness that grabs you away!

Oh man, this is life and it’s hard
Live and prove that you aren’t a coward!

    1. Oh dear…. You are so sweet. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’• I am bit busy as we have shifted home this week and I’ve caught up with many many works. So couldn’t think much about writing. And am finding it difficult to read or comment in other posts too. 😣😣😣

      Thank you dear for your concern. It makes me feel happier. Probably will be back to track after a week or so but not sure. You are so loved! πŸ’•πŸ€—

      But I wish to come back soon… Loads of love to you ❣️❣️

    1. Thank you poet for noticing the rhyming. πŸ’• 🀭 Appreciate your stand against this. May be few are lucky to have fun and laughter throughout their lives. And there are few whose life is as hard as the things I’ve mentioned. 😊😊

      1. Both are true! Sometime, I almost feel guilty for having such a perspective while so many people are fretting over the chaotic times. I pray all could heal and begin to have more joy and an appreciation even for the struggles! Thank you for understanding!

  4. So touching and true! Loved it ❀
    btw I didn't know your name was Preeths I thought you were keeping it anonymous for some reason and so I when I replied I always replied to Samuel too in a collective manner, now I am laughing at my hypothesis haha. Nice to meet you (^_^)

      Glad you found out my name. ❣️ It’s not that I wanted to stay anonymous but I like it that way being called Offshore Writer. 😊

      But when someone asked my name, I didn’t refuse to let them know. 😊😊 Glad you got me right πŸ’žπŸ’ž

  5. such a great poem and you know Preeths, life isn’t always easy like you so astutely described but it is through the triupmhs and the tribulations that we come to know our best self and create a live that is rich in all of the colors of the rainbow. Kuddos dear girl! β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ™
