Final Rest. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

Final rest, humans exclaim!
Final resting place most important
Six feet of land it requires
But six feet of land sometimes missing.

Humans entitled a decent cremation
The resting place he entitled
In whatever circumstances can't be denied
A final journey in such calmness.

The vastness of sky we understand
But vastness of earth in personal terms
Always a point of controversy
Where highest walls and barbed wires
Obstructs the vastness, for a human being.

Topic(s) of this poem: friendship


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Good and convenient crematoriums are human necessity and sometimes where a small portion of people having no access to a piece of land for a decent burial of their near and dear.

    To have six feet of land to rest finally is every man's need.... In crammed places, it is not possible for everyone to have a personal space. In such situations at least there should be some parallel facilities for a man to have an honourable final departure! A thoughtful write! (Report)Reply

    This is the fact spelt out here as people are too materialistic to spare a small piece of land for the decent burial
    of holy human body.......nicely presented........thanks for sharing
