Poems About Life

Ronan Keating's 'Life is a Rollercoaster' is a perfect portrayal of what life is. There are sunny days of happiness, there is a pall of gloom, disappointments, and frustrations. In all, life is all about wishes, hopes, and ambitions. There are some days when we have everything, and there are others which are hollow and devoid of reasons to smile, we yearn for more - things we never got, reminiscence about events gone by, and dozens of other feelings and emotions. And then there is always the joy of birth and the finality of death marking our sojourn at regular intervals. Life itself could be a beautiful poem and poems are inspired from life.
