ENCOUNTER Poem by Mula Veereswara Rao


When I encountered death,
'Ego' Evapourated!
Finally Death delivered final verdict!
All pain for power became in vain
I am absolutely alone
at the feeble moment of death!
Nobody is following
when I left the 'body'!
All fame gone to flames!
All friends are shedding
crocodile tears at my home!
Is it my home?
All magazines are busy in filling
'obituary column' wishing my soul
rest in 'peace'
They don't have idea of soul but
still wishing rest to it!
I became ruthless for being rich,
accumulated much wealth,
in process of getting it lost my health
finally emptied by death's wrath!
Vanity vanished by death's vicinity
I concurred with death
Confessed before death
Death smiles at me
said
'Don't worry i will give
new life with better vision'
