Life

By Mohammad Zaki Zaki

Kabul Mountains by Qk

Life is a puzzle, solve it
Life is a door, please open it
Life is a dream, hope for it
Life is a challenge, fight against it

Life is a duty, perform it
Life is a game, play it
Life is a promise, gain it
Life is a sorrow, overcome it

Life is a tragedy, confront it
Life is a test, accept it
Life is an adventure, dare it
Life is a chance, take it

Life is a lock, unlock it
Life is a song, sing it
Life is a book, read it
Life is a drama, perform it

Life is a gift, enjoy it
Life is a flower, smell it
Life is a movie, watch it
Life is a poem, feel it

Life is a novel, realize it
Life is a smile, give it
Life is a train, get on it
Life is very precious, do not destroy it

Life is a candle, light it
Life is a shadow, follow it
Life is a rainbow, enjoy looking at it
Life is life, fight for it

Life is not fair, accept it
Life is full of beauties, admire it
Life is the sunshine’s energy, receive it
Life is life, take it easy

But in Afghanistan
Life is just nonsense
Life is a nightmare
Life is an unknown phenomenon
It is almost a hope
