The Other World

Faith in a world infinite
Where no one alive has ever set foot
Though real or illusory
Makes death less scary
And leaves life not dreary
A balm to lives arduous
And an intoxicant to the pious

So why scoff it as the fancy of a fevered mind
While the mystery of it, no mortal could unwind

    we can think and ponder the other world, but it is not meant for us to know. what we know is what we have been taught from childhood. we need to keep the faith in tomorrow.

    A sweet little poem with great thoughts abounding about the mystery of death! Lovely, Valsa!

    Other than Faith you pointed out, there are pains of life also that make death less scary rather pleasant, herein lies the concept of Euthanasia too... BTW, what phase, and why you have started pondering over these issues suddenly...anyways, your lines carry poetic weight! ! !

    Why try to unwind the spiral spring of life? The moment you leave the hold it springs back to its spiral form. Poem of great depth. Thank you.

    Many people won't even contemplate death, the push it aside. But death is part of life that overtakes us all eventually. so why worry? A good poem.

    lot of people may get hung up with what they dont know.it bounces back to materialism that makes everyone free to do whatever they want.and thats why animals are not afraid of the other world.
    but we have to be CAREFUL not do anything that maybe it will make us repentant.

    A beautiful composition. We really are made up of our faith.

  • Nasarudheen Parameswaran (7/7/2013 11:23:00 AM)

    Faith of any type, ideological or personal or religious will make man/woman confident to concentrate in his/her work.This concentration will help in co-ordination of knowledge that results in success and this success will further improve confidence.So, three Cs based on Faith will make our life happy.No matter whether in mundane or spiritual world. For a weak man a walking-stick is needed which in no way help to walk but our confidence do it. Your poem overtly speaks it. well

    Yaaaaaa.........
    Dear Madam Valsa, we all often smash others` notions through arguments which are based on the different set of convictions in this world of contradictions.
    But here I am unhappy to note that you have generously admitted my ability to argue and and still believe that they can be only rated on par with your convictions with diametrically opposite purpose to serve.

    I am sincerely going to evaluate all the writes which are capable of marring the possibility of the triumph of the transparent truth which are pitted against the things hypothetical.

    I evaluate you and a few others who are important to me as good friends and I am happy that most of you permit me to write and compliment the exercise wholeheartedly. Thank you all.
