Colors Of Life

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 42; the forty-second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "COLOR"

Colors Of Life

This poem describes stages of one's life with colors to which these stages signify. White for infancy, yellow for adolescence,red for youth,green for middle aged and black for old age.In this poem each line starts with the ending word of previous line.

A child is born,
born as pure as color white,
white of purity,white of light,
light which to god signifies.

Signifies energy & joy is color yellow,
yellow of happiness,yellow of youth,
youth without any burden,careless and free,
free to imagine,grow in whatever one wants to be.

Be lover,sings songs of love,
love fills the heart with color red,
red of aggression,red of passion, 
passion for dreams to conquer the world,
world that shapes our life.

Life is nature,nature is color green,
green of calm,green of hope,
hope of a stable life with your partner,
partner to settle have family and friends,
friends which remains till the end.

End comes near as one grew old,
old age which is dark as color black,
black of death,black of unknown,
unknown about the evil or good,
good to bid adieu when all duties done.

Done always good to have a colorful life.
Life of humanness in rainbow color thrive.
