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 a song' and how to 'sing it'.

Life is a song, sing it.

When you sing a song you won’t feel tired.

When your life becomes a song, you won’t feel the burden of its myriad conflicts and hardships. Hardly there is anybody who never likes a song.

Song or singing is the universal entertainer. When you sing the life divine, you rock with the joy of living.

People sing the same song in many different tunes according to their taste. The aim of any song is enjoyment when you sing. That enjoyment multiplies when you tap your feet to the tune and sometimes when you feel like dancing.

A life lived like a song being sung with all enjoyment is the life full of bliss.

Mother Teresa’s life is a song in which there is no redundant vocabulary to eliminate as unnecessary or unsuitable for the tune to be played. Her life’s song is most appealing to the various genres of world music. She is the orchestrator of innumerable lives she had rescued from bad tunes.

Why life is a song?

Life is many things, and singing to express our emotions is a way of life and we all enjoy the delight and sorrow of a song.

Why life is a song?

Because a song has all the qualities of life.

A song begins like a life.

It has various stages.

It has a beginning, its highs and lows, meandering like a river, tempos fast and slow, chorus, echoes, accompaniments, and an end.

I came across a song with a heart-rending video that shows the dire state of the world we live in.

Here's is that video (please forgive me if it troubles you):

Why I chose this video to insert here is, it has many things to tell us, especially from the view point of Mother Teresa who sacrificed her life for the poor and the abandoned people.

She proved that we can help each other to make our life happy on this planet. And many people joined her mission to help the helpless.

We need not sacrifice our lives as Mother Teresa did, but each one of us can contribute a little to drive off the poverty from the world.

A life like no other - that is Mother Teresa's! What Einstein told about Gandhiji comes to mind - generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as Gandhi ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth. The one extreme of possibilties in our life! Thanks for a great tribute, Rathna - siva

Thank you Rathna, this was such a wonderful tribute to a legend. Looking at the words on the German stamp, took me back to junior school when I took German language for a year, it says: "Poverty was not created by God, this was produced by us, you and I through our egoistic nature." Thank you for sharing.

Rathnashikaman, One night, a few years ago, my wife and I were cleaning out an old box and we found a plastic bag full of letters. They were from many years ago when my wife was very active in the pro-life movement here in America. She was in jail in N. Y. state and the letters were from well wisher from all over the world. One card to my wife and her group was from Mother Teressa who had signed the card herself. We still have it. Renee, my wife, spent many months in jails all across the U. S. for protesting against abortion.

Perhaps "Life is a song" could be compared with poetry, the language of the heart...only enhanced with music's expression. Interesting analogy, "comparing works made enjoyable with music's addition." Quite uplifting, to say the least!
