Death~a Fear Or A Chance To Outlive?

Rating: 5.0

What's the reason I'm here?
In this dreadful world of fear,
Where people close their mind, lest they fall,
Why can't they see those who stand tall?

Why are they behind a life they can never live?
Neither they'll leave a mark, nor they'll give,
Something they ought to, but never will,
But'll give up mountain, if they fail the hill.

What's life to them? Who they want to be?
Why can't they look inside? Why can't they see?
And why do they overlook their original 'me'?
How could they earn pearls, if they fear the sea?

Why do they fear being rebel or misfit?
Why do they walk with crowd, and then knit,
Desires for what others want to meet,
Why can't they feel themselves a bit?

Those who're crazy enough to think
that they can change the world and don't sink.
In the river of fear where others drink
the poison of being always in the pink.

Stand up today, fear not eating dust,
There might be loss, but you must
Know that winning requires a beginning first,
It's your life, and your just.

Coming back from where I started,
Who lives on? And who gets departed?
Want to live in one piece, then fear not getting parted,
One day or another, we'll all get aborted.
But there are some, who manage to live,
because death for them is a chance to outlive…
because death for them is a chance to outlive…

The world is a fancy stage.We all are actors with a purpose.
But it is not the director who allots us our roles.We are the ones who choose what we are and what we will be.
This poem is for those who think that they are failures, worthless, those who fear, those who look for diamonds when they have a body made of carbon.

M.K.Gandhi, Steve Jobs, the people who see things differently, those who are crazy, misfits, rebels are the ones who've inspired me to write this.I hope it at least inspires a few.

We want to live so peacefully here though death is not at all a relief....the real relief is our belief.... A well written poem! ! ! !
