The Physics of Life

Life as I see it... in a lighter vein!

The Physics of Life

It's difficult to climb
great heights in life
as you have to go
against gravity.

It is easy to fall
to the ground in life
as gravity just
pulls you down.

It's also difficult
to climb or fall in life
as inertia
keeps you grounded.

Sometimes life moves
along a trajectory
and sometimes
it appears stationary.

Life often times
has real depth
and at other times,
apparent depth.

It may be
positively charged
one day and neutral
the very next.

So several forces
come into play
in deciding
one's position in life.

The physics of life
is really complicated.
Life can be physically
taxing indeed.
