Illness is a blessing in disguise

Often it may make us realize

 

Our short comings and woes

And sincere friends from foes

 

A time for soul searching

An occasion for ruminating

 

When life is smooth and easy

We end up errant and sleazy

 

But when the sailing is rough

We cannot thank God enough

 

For it makes us reflect

Think deep and correct

 

The wrongs we were doing

The vices we were chewing

 

To become better than before

A lucrative deal for sure!

(Dr Shehzad Saleem)
