Joy

A Moment of joy is delicate
Like the flight of a bird
Try to grasp it
And it’ll slip through

All you can do is dwell in it
Try to understand it
And it’ll baffle you
Glide in it is all you can do

I’ve been told that life is
The sum of such moments
But if we don’t notice them
They will pass you by

Then who is to say
Whether we have lived at all?
Try to understand it
And you have lost it all

    haha, that’s a nice one.. straightforward.

    just a comment on the third stanza:

    ‘Life’ is the sum of whatever u perceived it to be. Some individuals would grade it either + or – whilst others would have a progressive grading system.

    But, we have been taught since kids that, as Muslims, we are in great condition whether the situation is a + or a -… if + we thank Allah, and if – we are patient.

    a thoughtful poem from a blabbering person :p

      I used to believe in the + and – but recently I’ve been seeing life in it’s totality. It’s rather peaceful to be released from the chase of pleasure and the avoidance of pain.
