Death Is Not The Harvest Of Life


Swami Ramona Maharishi!
He lived a humble, holy life.
He blessed a lot; he cured a lot.
He lived without stress, without strains.

He suffered a terrible end.
Not yet ripe, he developed cancer,
Suffered repeated surgery
And died after two year agony.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba, His Highness!
A God incarnation, he claimed.
He healed all by super power.
He predicted the time of his death.

He died a decade earlier.
He suffered a horrible death
After two months intensive care,
When acute pain ruled him throughout..

Their way of life does not deserve
The type of end they were to get.
Their sufferings must have been worse
Than the most of their devotees.

What does it mean and signify?
Death is not the harvest of life.
Because you live a worthy life
You can’t ensure a painless death.
