Commodities...


When everything
has a cost
and an expiry date,
I wonder why
happiness
doesn’t have a price-tag
and MY sorrow
an expiry date!

  1. Difficult question.Sometimes one has to glean happiness from the debris of broken dreams.

  4. happiness doesn't have a prize tag....but its not free...everyone is paying a different amount...different cost...
    and one sorrows expires when other start growing in our heart....
    so ofcourse we are like commodities in Gods hand !!!!
    :-(

  6. Happiness has a price tag, a price only few can afford!
    And sorrow has an expiry date too, just that we look at the closed door for so long that we forget some other doors are opened too!
    A very thoughtful post sir:)
    Liked it!

  7. Amit...you can say that again. Happiness does come at a price, whether it be money, relationships or possessions.
    Nothing is free..!
    Loved this!

  8. You and all other dear learned friends who have expressed
    similar views are absolutely correct, Panchali, but the nuance here is that the 'price tag' is not figurative, it is literal(!)..meaning thereby it is not available off the shelf through MONEY:)

  13. This is a very well put on question! though i feel our happiness has an expiry date and our sorrow has a price tag! We have to pay for it! isn't it?

  14. ..the other way round...makes it a more interesting subject to analyse! Thank you Shesha for this entirely different view point:)
    PS: I have started agreeing with the first part that happiness does have an expiry date.!

  15. Hehe. Sir i wonder Sorrows also have an expiry date, but we dont realize that, because we want them to expire!

    1. Perhaps that is why!
      The poet feels it would have been easy to acquire happiness if only it had a price in terms of money..!
      Thank you Tangy for giving it a thought:)
