Death, The Inevitable Hour - Poem by Kezang Dawa


Nothing is immortal in this world

Living together is joy to every one

Once unexpected death raises one's eyes

Unbearable pain knocks very one's happiness

I live happy in the worth of a day

Tomorrow we may smile through tears

Never think he is old, my age so prodigy

Who knows I may die place body in grave next day

Never oath through tip of a finger

I can fulfill my parent's desire, never promise!

Rather do swear only thy mind

Every promise is to be broken

What I promise only abandoned hope

Once born death is inevitable

Death is said to live behind every doorsteps

Every man desire to lead his soul to heaven

Heaven the happiest place never dwell

But no man wishes to carry that grievous sin

The hell of longest journey never trod

To seek heaven, I need dharma

That will guide our path to heaven?

Rosary is only true way to nirvana

Don't torture or abuse those solitary animals

Every animal once have been our mother

Never kill beggar's heart through insolent tongue

If ye, don't have nothing to treat them away,

Wish them a happy smile through thy good voice.

He is rich but live in depth of desire

Wealth is nothing once you are old

Happiness is just a moment, sorrow beyond measure

Our life is said be only illusive

Never hate others, be good.

Once hair wither, so hands tremble to beg

World is a stage where we laugh and shed tears

Only last episode in general drama of pain.
