The Colour OF Death


As much as i tried to escape
Life tied me up so much,

Wel, let da life going on
Da way it used to go n mess
But death should be exclusive & elite.......

I think death is always exclusive & unusual
It coloured by the colour of sovereignty?


(Ami muktir jonno paliye jete chailam joto
Toto e holam bondi......

Jibon ta jemon temon katuk apotti nai
kintu mrittu ta shundor howa chai,
Naki mrittu shob shomoy e shundor

Muktir rong e rongin?)
