Mother Teresa - Her life as a Poem: Life is costly

Mother Teresa is a phenomenon in the God's creation.
The poem 'LIFE' is well-known as a great quote from her wonderful sayings.
This is an attempt to understand what is LIFE and its interpretation from each line in that poem.

Here, I examine how 'Life is costly' and how to 'care for it'.

Life is costly, care for it.


Caring is to have a concern or interest in a thing you like.

Here, the cost is not referring to the monetary value. The cost of life cannot be assessed with currency. The cost of life is immeasurable by any units. The life that thrives on this Earth is not to be evaluated for an auditing nor calculatedly fitted into a mathematical model.

Any life is just life, and it is enough if you perceive its significance to be preserved for a period it has to exist along with other lives.

Every life is valuable, or rather invaluable. Everyone who takes birth has a right to live for the full life span. Mother Teresa respected the human life as the gift from the God and saved every faltering orphan she came across in her journey towards her destiny to reach God by way of serving the humanity.

We often come across some people who, from their calculated cunningness, have lost the regard for ‘the Life as it is’. Then we see them abandoning their diseased kith and kin making them helpless. Mother Teresa was very quick to rescue those abandoned souls and gave shelter, food and clothes, and medical aid at the orphanages and outreach clinics.

By her service to humanity, she demonstrated to the world that any life is as precious as anybody’s life.

I feel any volume of praise is not enough to realize what Mother Teresa has done to the society.

One thing I have always taught my kids and any other children that I have had the pleasure to cross my path, that you are just as good as the next person. In turn, I also expressed you are no better than any one else either. You can also go by the old adage 'Do not judge a book by its cover.'. I love the message, great article my friend. Thank you for sharing.:)
