Treasure Island

Kavya ...


Our Final Verdict


It can come calling us any time
Be it rain or shine,
It comes so unexpectedly
That we keep wondering repeatedly,
We had met the person only yesterday evening
Unable to believe or am I dreaming!

It's something that visits us without intimation all of a sudden
To ease us from the life's burden,
To depart from the worldly stake
Giving us an eternal break,
It can come not necessarily while driving or trekking
But even at home while we are resting!

To elude it, we tend to take extreme care to be safe
Avoiding any godforsaken deed or place,
But if it has to come
It follows us even if we run,
Here there is no religion bar
As everybody is treated at par!

So do whatever you feel like doing and fly high
Go scuba diving, para gliding, go touch the sky
As no matter what, if time hasn't come we will subsist
Live your life to the fullest, do not resist
Death is one thing which no one can predict
As to when is the exact date and time of Our Final Verdict!

    A great poem Kavya! Death, like a thief or an unexpected visitor can come to us anytime without prior intimation or notice! We can only succumb to his summons without resistance! So treat each day as a boon and try to enjoy life without losing in self pity and bitterness or jealousy for others! Enjoyed much! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
