Oblivion, The Blessed.


Friends or Foes,
All those seen and known
Will keep haunting and hunting,
Save, the blessed Oblivion.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Nothing new, a natural fact.In human mind, owing to man's nature and relation with others, memories and considerations keep haunting on.
The only exception is forgetting. Oblivion only erases others from our minds. Oblivion is blessed because, it does not have to recall anyone, and think or care, fear or cherish, feel awe or delight, irritated or confused...and this list could still run to the distant dark verge of eternity, if one seriously contemplate on how blessed is Oblivion. Oblivion does not have to fear of stress, blood pressures, head aches and worries.. and what not! ... keep interpreting and contemplating on how blessed is Oblivion...

    Like the sea without waves, life without memories will be so inert! Though we often extol 'sweet oblivion' think of the plight of people with Dementia! Loss of memory is onething I dread most! Ofcourse friends keep hunting and haunting.... but think of a state when we can't recall any of them! ! (Report) Reply
