Treasure Island

krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

(1964 and doing pretty good.. / Thiruvalla, Kerala)

Someday we will all go............


There is a place where we will all some day go
No immigration checks or hassles as before
No permits, stamped visas or pass ports
And nothing to declare at that ornate door
But just your integrity and nothing more
Black or brown, yellow or white
It matters not and everyone is treated right
Because you will leave body and baggage behind
Either six feet deep or as ashes in waters flowing wild
Untainted even having spent a lifetime on the sinful shore
Here you will just be a pure soul back at its very source
And what more, it will feel like really being back home.....

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The destination is fixed and even the time to depart. However, it has been mercifully kept secret. This should enthuse us to live more intensely realizing the true value of every breathing minute. We are already on the train but live as if there is no getting down.....

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
