Action Must Speak


Try
If you want to die
You may fly
But not in sky

People say
There is no other way
You may have to go one day
So earnestly pray

Think of no other world
“This is nice place” we are told
What accompanies with us?
Nothing except faith and trust

You may carry good name
Sans bad character without blame
You will be forgotten
As it happens often

What is there in name?
The end nicely came
People wept over your death
With heavy voice and breath

Do your worth and prove
When you go out or move
Your action must speak
Not your words weak
