DEATH REDEFINED


DEATH REDEFINED
esspeecee …02.10.04.

I love life
To adore death,
I buy life
To earn death.

I burn life
To illuminate death,
I spend life
To glut death.

I lend ‘life-warmth’
Thro’ cremation,
I enliven life
Thro’ termination.

Why?
Verily life is –
Nonexistent, accident,
Dream, nightmare,
Event: Crash landing.

Death is reality show
Phenomenon, wakefulnes,
Courageous, eventuality
Event: Safe landing.

Life is
A labyrinth: Like blind lane
Omnibus: One-Way-Trafficking.

Life: Unguided missile,
Death: Guided missile.

Death is:
Open avenue, esplanade
No traffic rule,
No ‘no-entry-board’
All are welcomed
No red eyed law of modernity.

Death: Kingdom of –
All fulfillments. Joys,
Frank optimisms,
Unalloyed grief,
Unblemished despair.

Ye, Death I embrace your
Magnanimous, majestic splendor.
