Guaranty of life

GUARANTY OF LIFE
=================
What covenant
do we have
who has the guaranty
to live until old age
even a sunset--
none of us--
So no need to believe in
The Fortune teller
Since we have enough chutzpah
to dive in life with pleasure
~~~~Jawahar Gupta ~~~

Chutzpah (/ˈhʊtspə/ or /ˈxʊtspə/) is the quality of audacity, for good or for bad. The Yiddish word derives from the Hebrew word ḥutspâ (חֻוצְפָּה), meaning "insolence", "cheek" or "audacity".
And this word has been used recently in Bollywood movie,,Haider by Sahid Kappor,,and it is not used in place of "Chutiapa "
