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.

    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

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
