Life Of My Death - Poem by Usman Hanif

My only difference
Between life and afterlife
is my death

My only triumph
upon the whole universe
is my death

My only freedom
of thoughts from mind
is my death

My only distinction
from the angels and devils
is my death

My only decision
after all my decisions
is my death

But death is short-lived
and the thing that pleases me
is my death

Life always presents span
and the shortest spanned
is my death

I can grasp everything
but the thing out of my bounds
is my death...

    your death wouldn't please me. If you're speaking from deep feelings I know where you are coming from. wonderfully expressed - long life to you and many more poems to touch us. (Report)Reply
