Twisted End


Ready I am to face the moment of truth

Strong I am because I believe in my faith

Bitter or sweet for me life will be the same

As I live on this earth in good lord's name



As the patient finished his words with a sigh

Concerned doctor struggled hard not to cry

Replied with love and compassion doing his best

Revealed little by little final results of the test



Kind was not fate to the debilitated patient

Hearing the dire word Cancer, he went silent

Staring at the doctor in a solemn silence

Accepted the acrimonious verdict with valiance



Embracing the patient doctor whispered in his ears

Sorry to say you have only a short life of two years

Go home to finalise your future with your family

Pray I will for you everyday in peace valley



As fate has it little did they know the twisted end

Death came calling on the doctor, in the river bend

As he swirled his car towards the home on mountain

Road became two lane highway heading towards heaven



Doctor or patient matter it don't for the death

Healthy or sick everyone makes exit from this earth

One cannot deceive death by claiming good health

As all mortals are headed towards the exit from birth

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
