Life Is Not Eternal! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

Somebody’s cup is filled with milk,
Honey is still flowing from somebody else cup!

Medicinal decoction is still not emptying
From the cups of some others!

Wine is still full and brimming
Over the edge of other’s cups!

But, One day!
Everybody’s cup becomes empty! !

Alas!
Life is not eternal!
