Life’s Arithmetic

One plus one make two, and

one minus one, zero.

Simple arithmetic, eh…

 

In a relationship, e.g., matrimonial,

some people choose

the first option, join together,

and double their strength

to live a life of happiness, togetherness.

 

Others go for the second choice,

and get reduced to nothingness

to live a life of split and misery.

 

This or that,

consciously or mindlessly,

the choice is theirs…entirely,

the consequence is their own…totally,

to script their own destiny, and

live their life

in happiness or misery.

 

Life thus becomes

a mere problem

of simple arithmetic, or

simple preferences and choices!
