"Few Words To Cemetery&Quot; - Poem by Munia Khan

Cemetery,

Wish I could overcome your cruel invitation
to the ultimate destination
towards the unknown…

As I'm here sensing your dampness,
a puddle of mud
under my feet
feels like a slug…

But I'm boastful
now that I'm still standing
six feet from the very edge…

You are a cool cemetery.
You have the sinner's grave
You have the saint's earth
Colliding….

You have all the beds
narrow as a knife;
as if a rally of tombstones to defend death.

But you can't really postpone
the inauguration of my burial,
can you?

You are nothing
but a designated land
of soulless bodies

You are the crematorium—
life dares to accept.
The calmest place
on earth you are!

What a floral cemetery you've become
after a ceremony of death
on your misty ground!

And eventually
You are a graveyard-—
A peaceful rendezvous
with my sleepy father!
