My Life experiences

My life has been full of wonderful experiences
I have met so many people in my life time
Some nice & good and some very nasty
Some honest and transparent, others very dubious

I have come to understand that life is full of ups and downs
And it becomes what you make of it
Some have chosen a fast path and others a slow and steady one
Some believe in living a hard life while others an easy one

I have come to understand that some people have a ready smile all the time
While others a frown irrespective of the situation
I belong to those with a frown but with a lot of compassion & love
I believe that life is not a fairy tale; you have to work hard to achieve you

I have come to understand that some people are themselves all the time
While others want to blend with others or work hard to be others
I have seen people with wealth but no happiness, no love or peace
I have seen people that are poor but contended with the little that comes their way
I have also seen people that are living in abject poverty

I have seen people who strive to become something but have not achieved their dreams
I have seen people who live in a dream world and have refused to wake up
World Pulse members, allies and foes, lets work together to get a better life for our people

I look forward to a world were everybody will be equal
a world where women and girls can live without molestation
without sexual harassment, without wicked widowhood practice
a world where women and girls will not be mutilated in any form
a world were freedom is abound.
