A Journey Into Mortality - Mh370


We live life once
In memories and through those we love
Life is fragile and a journey
Travelled on highways in the sky
Amongst the clouds, guided by destiny
To a place eternal

Perhaps you can smile
Light a silver lining on a cloud
In a way few will forget
That’s all that matters in mortality
Look at the good things
That has happened in this life

Be glad in the hands of the maker of life
You were carried and cradled
In this eternal journey into mortality
In this sphere of time and place
Memories still linger

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote down this poem on behalf of those people on the Malaysian Airlines flight 370 - MH370. A joint search and rescue effort, later reported as the largest in history, was initiated in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea. The search area was later extended to include the Strait of Malacca, Andaman Sea, and the Indian Ocean. On 24 March 2014, the Malaysian government confirmed analyses by the British Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) and Inmarsat and concluded 'beyond any reasonable doubt' that the aircraft had gone down in the southern Indian Ocean with no survivors.

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
