The Irony of Life…

Poetry on a Snowy Saturday morning. I call it the ‘Irony of Life’.

A man may not like food but needs it to live
He may not like fire, yet it is essential
A man may not like water but cannot resist a sip
He may not like accidents, yet, can’t stop driving
Scared and worried sick about plane crashes
Yet, loves travelling by air.

He may even hate death, and pray for long life
But one day, at an appointed time
Somewhere, somehow,
He will die while wondering and pondering,
On where, when and how it will happen.
Thus, the irony of life still remains
A mystery.
