Hair’s Breadth From Death - Poem by Vikram G. Aarella

Has it happened to you?
When you felt you were,
So close to being eliminated
From the existence forever.

When we sit and think
Think about all the incidents,
When we have had close shave
With having fatal accidents.

There are so many of them
Which we tend to easily forget,
And do the same mistakes again
Though not always with intent.

We forget about these things
Because nothing has changed,
Saved many times by the split second
On which life and death was gauged.

Life is so fragile and delicate
Extinction is always at arms length,
We live a life of uncertainty
We are hair’s breadth from death.
