The Great Book
There is a single great book, a thick and large one
That has changed my life’s course many a time.
My reading is incomplete, as the book is still unfinished.
Each day I go through a page with awe and wonder
And seek to comprehend the meaning of each line.
Sometimes I ruffle the pages and glance through them
Then the sounds, smell and sights of the past chapters
Pass swiftly through my mind and heart.
Innumerable plots and sub-plots make up its story
Many patrons and a few opponents make up the characters
Conflicts and crises, to the self and to others, make up the mood
But the protagonist and others, and even the plot,
Are not fully disclosed for the book is still being written.
I’m not so keen to see the book finished any time now
But that is in the hands of the Great Writer to decide
For ‘The Book of Life’ is His marvelous Creation.
You and I, my dear friend, are all part of this Big Book
All interwoven skillfully into its well-planned structure.
