You Are Living...!

You Are Living...!

If you are dreaming,
You are living.
Machines cannot dream....!
If you are loving,
You are living.
Machines are not programmed to love....!
If you are smiling,
You are living.
Machines have no emotions to show....!
If you are thinking,
You are living.
Machines have a different way to think...!
If you are sweating,
You are living.
Machines work continuously without sweat...!
If you are crying,
You are living.
Machines never try to cry....!
If you are accusing,
You are living.
Machines never accuse anybody though they never go wrong...!
In fact we live our life parallel to machines
Though they don't have parallel lives....!
Machines can do almost everything we do...
Except
Forgiving....!
If you are forgiving others,
You are living.....!

True sir...sometimes, being stuck in the hectic schedule we start living like a machine....you have shown very beautifully how a machine is different from our life though it does everything that we do.
A wonderful, powerful and perceptive write. This great poem captures the essence of life. A meaningful life imbued with love, kindness... simply being a man. Beautifully written.
You are indeed living and not just existing. The essence of living is deeply conveyed. A poignant write.10+++++
