By Fatima Kazim

Everyone’s life is a story

With love and happiness, failure and glory
With loss and despair, hope and desire
Our life is a chance
To do something right
To make a difference
It goes on with countless such chances
Until the last day
When death meets us
And ends our tale in a blink of an eye
But all we have done
And all we have worked for
In our loved ones’ stories lives on
Long after we are gone
