Wandering With Words

Random musings of a reckless soul.

Hakuna Matata!


Do you feel cheated

By life?

Has it ever occurred

Just when you set things right

Life changes the plan


Like when you were a kid

You didn’t find the one gift you wished

Among the hundreds you received


Or when you ended up being

Second in class

Even though you tried so hard


Or when mom makes boring breakfast

And there’s no ice-cream for dessert


Or when the hottest one in class

Is a ‘just friend‘


Or when you earn only enough

For a small car; not a big one


All those moments in life

When you had to settle for something less than best

Life is unfair, isn’t it?

But look who disagrees

The child who sleeps half naked

Near the garbage, under the trees

Well she says she is happy

And grateful for whatever she eats

And she insists:

Life never cheats.

  1. You know what Irfana…. In life we should have lil less than how much we need and unnecessary comparison always keeps us satisfied and we be grateful for what we have got 🙂
