Life is Love… Love is Life !!

Life is not about impeccability and perfection,
It is in knowing and accommodating flaws and limitations.

Life is not about dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s,
It is about doing what you enjoy… anything that gives you peace.

Life is about the littlest things that spell satisfaction. 

Happiness is not in money and flamboyant living,
It is in having nothing and still giving.
happiness is not in restrictions and conditional clauses,
It is in the freedom of unplucked roses.
happiness is not in revenge so much as it is in forgiving.

Love is not about laughter that’s superficial,

It is about sharing in grief and,

                Wiping tears that are real.

Love is not about good times in houses that are palatial,

It is about hope and faith when,

                 deprived of everything vitally essential.

Contentment is not in laments and complaints – myriad and plenty,

It is acceptance and compromise when life is near empty.

Contentment is not ­­in seeking and wanting a lot,

It is in building a beautiful life out of naught.

Contentment belongs not to the body, but to the soul in reality.

Life has many positives, despite the negatives…

Happiness is in the plusses, not the minuses…

Love is in repairs and mends, never in breaks and ends…

Contentment is in Life, Love, and Happiness than in anything else!!

  1. Oh Wow I don’t know where to begin. This poem is lovely and so cleverly wrought. “Life is not about dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s,
    It is about doing what you enjoy… anything that gives you peace.” — I love that slant rhyme! So clever. I never would have thought of it.
    This is beautiful:
    “Happiness is not in money and flamboyant living,
    It is in having nothing and still giving.
    happiness is not in restrictions and conditional clauses,
    It is in the freedom of unplucked roses.
    happiness is not in revenge so much as it is in forgiving.”
    I love the way you break the rhyme scheme with “when” and that break forces the reader to pause. It gives the next line such poignancy:
    “Love is not about good times in houses that are palatial,

    It is about hope and faith when,

    deprived of everything vitally essential.”
    Thank you!

  2. WOW that’s amazing! Such depth of emotions. And you are right on every point. “Life is not about impeccability and perfection, It is in knowing and accommodating flaws and limitations.”
    You are a Maestro!
