Samanyan Lakshminarayanan


# # an unplanned journey


no travel agent
no travel schedule
no tickets taken
no luggage packed there in
no money taken even
no idea where am goin
no plans of destination even
no....going is not my decision even

like a child
pulled out of it's play
by its parent
i walk along
leaving behind..
...my body

    that final journey.....some anxiously await it...some fear it...some don't even bother... whatever be the case the journey has to be taken for once and for ever. (Report) Reply

    very soulful write...
    When we travel towards our 'main' destination...
    leaving our body behind us...very touching..very true..
    very nice write Sam...

    when the soul leaves its shell, it's moving quite well.
    the soul is taken a second look at what it has to do.

    True when we came, we were empty handed. When we take the final journey, we go empty handed. This truth is highlighted in the poem well. (Report) Reply

    Death a parent who leads us
    From this child's play on earth
    To other worthy work on high
    What a stupendous thought
    The parent holds our hand
    And leads us on, so, no fear
    Other players may shed a tear
    But soon forget and resume to play!
    As always your thoughts are so different, refreshing and inspiring.

    carefree attitude like that of child if we carry it along as an adult why....it is always misunderstood as irresposibility....?
    good thought 10. (Report) Reply
