A Question Of Life And Death - Poem by Rajesh Thankappan

Life shall testify
Whether one’s death
Shall be a mere
Dust or a speck.
And death shall testify
Whether one’s breath
Was wholly spent
Upon this earth.
When life can justify
One’s death
And death can justify
One’s breath
Only then can we say
To have travelled
Across the shores
Of the earth!
