WHEN LIFE AND NUMBERS MET

Life seems to be all about numbers!

Breaths and beats all are numbers,

Dates and years all have some stories to tell.

Connecting the dots one by one

To figure out what life offers

To count ups and downs, slopes and intercepts

To measure degree of turns and curves

Appears to be endless unfathomed blues

Just like numbers, between two is infinite!

No one else other than your soul

Knows how huge that sum is

The distance you crawled, you jumped

The long path no equations can deduce.

Alas! Why life pacing like progression of decimals?

Wailing some, when it offers bitter and tears.

Ah! Why life galloping like an exponent of tens?

Astounding others, when it offers sweet and joy.

What all own is one life

This 'one' with many digits and figures

Some worth to be valued, but no one counts

Some just trashy, but many embracing

No one values what to be valued

Counting the wealth, jewels and medals

Days here are counted, though many forget.

Count your deeds, hands you reached and smile you offered

Start it over, if it’s zero.

To fill some null set with priceless numbers!

And to feel the numbers that are serene, awe and bliss!
