The Rippling Waves of Life

The Rippling Waves of Life

Should not one learn to ride the rippling waves?
Keep one’s poise in storm and silence.
It thunders, rumbles, and roars like a beast,
But does ride one in its tranquil ship.

It tests one’s mettle
to prepare one for the war of nerves,
Fragrant petals of a Lotus in bloom
Demands a drench in the squelching muck.

Life- a cosmic cycle of life and death;
Hope and despair with success and failures.
To swim into its depths with ease and awe,
Should not one learn to ride the rippling waves?
