My Concept of Life as a Comparative Literature Major 

Note: This entry was originally written on 19th January, 2016 for my BIO 1 class.


 

As we talk about existence through prose,

We may speak of life through poetry.

Or through a critical review of a thousand words,

A research paper and critique mostly.

 

We immortalise life with words we write,

Composed of thoughts we fail to speak.

As we face this rollercoaster ride called life,

Writing about it seems on fleek.

 

Life is a figure of speech;

One part irony and two parts metaphor.

An upside down when things go okay;

Everything, an interrelated force.

 

To make God’s gift worth living,

Make our everyday life flow with rhythm.

Maybe add a dash of sarcasm to spice it up.

Perhaps, this will be a successful mechanism.
