About Life

On Death

Endless as the ocean

And wide as the sea,

I am filled with emotion

Thinking that can’t be…

Loved people come our way,

Then suddenly they pave a new road far away,

As they depart with no warning –

Leaving so early on a silent morning!

We tend to believe that we rule

As we decide, plan, organize, and aim

Oh how ironic, and how fool!

As in a second, there is nothing left to claim!

Death is a path – we all have to take,

It is so real, so daunting, and not fake!

It is the one that takes as far

Leaving it’s door wide ajar!

It strikes at once,

Warning you with every pounce!

It shows pride in its power,

Stressing it every minute of the hour.

It brings heavy silence with it

Pain, anger, agony of no limit!

It does not differ among the human race

Black, white, poor, or rich – as it knows no face!

But once we are back on trek

We humans tend to forget,

We fail to appreciate life at its full

Taking it for granted – all in a handful!

But then death falls on us with a thud

Wrapping its weight in a flood.

To remind us that it will always come our way

With no invitation, or a warning, or even a say!

And when they are gone

Only memories help us to move along,

Leaving us with shattered thoughts

But with a faith ever so strong!

It is life with all its irony,

Its beauty, its harshness

Its bitterness its sweetness –

Beating in our hearts tirelessly!

Acceptance is the key

Acknowledgment makes us knee

To what matters the most –

The Truth, and to that I toast!
