Elixir Of Immortality - Poem by Md. Ziaul Haque

I wish I had the elixir of immortality,
That in the Mahabharata was saved by Mohini!
From the thieving asuras,
And distributed it amongst the Devas.

I wish I could attain immortality,
Safeguarding youth smartly!
I am not foolish like Sybil in “The Waste Land”,
Neither am I over-excited like Tithonus in the end.

I know that immortality is a delusion,
For man it is not an apt solution!
