Life is Not Life

What is Life?
Life is not life,
When you live lifeless,
Wounded by life’s knife,
Left with no atom of happiness.

Life is not life,
Though you reach life’s apogee,
Possessing all in life’s archive,
But leaving for others only your elegy.

Life is not life,
When your living appears vive,
But you know within that strife,
Your struggle to thrive.

Life is only life,
When that eternal hope is sure,
Life is only life,
When assuredly, your soul is secure.
