An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Farce of life!

Yes I pretend!
When I am sad..
I still smile.
But I can’t stop smiling
when I am actually happy!
I might laugh when
I don’t like your joke!
But I cannot not laugh
when I really like it!
I say life is good
when it actually is bad.
But I can’t say life is bad
when it is absolutely good!
All that charade is nothing but
an effort to accept!
(or did I say escape?)
Never mind the farce of life!

    Good one- Optimism in life, Positive thinking, and accepting every thing as they are rather than what they should be. Enjoy your poem written from your heart. Thanks Jugal
