Treasure Island

Vijay Sai

(30 12 1975 / Trichy, South India)


Save me, Save me,
I'm dying-
I'm close to breathing my last,
Save me! Oh!
I'm struggling to free myself-
The enemy is after me
How could I shout!
Save me!
I'm cornered,
It's getting over,
That's all!
The little ant could only scream-
but couldn't save itself
from being a prey to a spider
in its thin web!

    Excellent Analogy. I don't understand God's Design of the Universe. Theologists say Ant and Spider are both the forms of the same God. God eating God. Oh! God what is this Design? May be akin to Mukesh and Anil come from same parentage, Ambani. When One becomes Extra Two, conflicts are bound to happen. The Truth is, both are from the same fountain. (Report) Reply

    Who is there, of sufficient age, who has not seen that we have our own spider awaiting us: Death. (Report) Reply
