Hope for better!!!

“Better luck next time”
This life went without sublime
“Better safe than sorry”
Life will be consumed
Even without glory
“Don't tense your head”
It is still to be
“Better off dead”
If you can not
“better yourself”
Live on what is there in the shelf
If you are in glum and glee
“Chose between the devil and deep blue sea”
If your life has no fun
Think of
“Better off in long run”
Everyone is blessed with something
It is better than nothing
“Read between the lines”
Never sprain your spines
Consolation is “aid to content”
Just go “for the kill”
Never repent
“Die hard” to bring disdain
Just forget every pain
The road has only one end
No might can get it bent
One day activities will suspend
For every one, there is one end…………..
