Lifes' chapters

Life's chapters starts with the birth of the child,
The cries of the child thunders through the ward,
Tears of happiness rolls down the mother's face,
After all, its a 9 month period of time!

As the child grows, they learn new things,
Like a sponge, they absorb many things,
Like a parrot, they talk what they see,
They are innocent like the white slate.

As the child grows to be an adolescent,
They see many things around the environment,
They have many friends,
The good and the bad unfortunately surrounds.

Good and bad habits are sometimes added,
Sometimes bad habits are hard to throw,
It sticks like a magnet,
No matter where you are, it will follow!

When we grow up, we need to think,
After all, they say we are already an adult,
We are now matured in our thoughts and can think!
Of what is wrong and right!

Like any book, it has an introduction,
It goes on with the storyline,
The book of life has its storyline!
Its just that we need to mention!

Books have an ending,
The book of life has it ending,
It ends with the departure and the wailing,
From the hearts of the many surrounding,

Whats more important is the storyline,
Whats more important is what you have done during your lifetime!
Whatever you have done will be impregnated in the minds of everyone,
Whatever you have done has its impact on everyone.

Good or bad it leaves memories,
Good or bad it leaves a taste,
Its better we leave in a good taste!
Digestion is better with fond memories!

Filial piety is much missing amongst many,
Filial piety is often misted with materialism,
Compassion is now a rare asset among many,
Its not often you see them.

However, some like to show their filial-ness by wailing the loudest,
Some like to show to others that they care for the departed,
However, when the departed was alive, they couldnt care a hoot,
Such are the people that we see around.

Be not like them, be better than them,
Start your caring when you can,
Show the love to them,
After all, its not herculean!

The book of life has its conclusions,
Let us have good conclusions,
It leaves better aftertastes,
Am sure no one wants indigestions!
