The True Purpose of Life

The True Purpose of Life
Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

You come at the sunrise

And will go at the sunset

In the between, there will be shiny midday

There will be stormy weather

There will be rain and rainbow also

And in the between, a mist of blur

When the water turns into vapour

And goes to the sky

And we see different clouds

White, black and what not shape and colour

But every cloud has a silver lining.


Fame, achievement, success

disappointment, sorrows and failure

And if you don’t get swayed by all of them

And if you remain equanimous in every situation

And if your heart is pure from negativity

You are rich, very rich

And your treasure will be measured by

How much you have contributed to the well-being of humanity.
