A lack, a loss, A pain, a suffering, A broken dream, An unfulfilled desire, A longing of eons, A want of ages, All make us feel, Life is over. But the truth is, A lack makes space, For something else, To fill in. A loss gives a chance, To gain wisdom. A pain makes one accept, That life is not all roses, Some thorns are needed, To make the journey worthwhile. The suffering is a stage, Which transforms one, To unveil the light, Of the inner self. A broken dream, Inspires to dream again. An unfullied desire, Keeps the fire alive, To keep going and achieving. A longing of eons, Makes one realise, The value of a moment. A want of ages, Makes one understand, The fleeting nature of things. And one comes to a conclusion, Behind this lack, Behind this loss, Behind this pain, Behind this suffering, Behind this broken dream, Behind this unfufilled desire, Behind this longing of eons, Behind this want of ages, Something still remains.
