What For?


The ash will stay
as residue,
neither I can stop,
nor anyone of you.
Our home will be
filled with laughter,
where I'll be
not near
or far!
Ah! if there is,
another world,
between life-death,
cleverly furled,
it's no use of
our dreams' desires.
How could we feel,
our love and fires?
Our body links us
with thing cherished.
What for we cry,
if get perished?
To destroy all,
our longing, lust,
we come to go.
only soul does last.

    Whether or not our souls live on can never be known, we can only either believe or disbelieve. Well penned poem Hari. (Report) Reply

    You raise an interesting thought, Hari.Our bodies just a temporal reflection of our soul.The one that flickers out and the other flickers on. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
