Like Raindrops - Poem by Sanjukta Nag

We are all like raindrops,
Falling parallel in a dull manner
Towards the chasm of uncertainty.
Life is too short to become conscious
About the reason of existence.
By the time wisdom spreads its seven colours
Holding the hand of eternal sunshine,
The unknown land of death embraces our wet body
And we are sucked by its greedy thirstful mouth,
To be vanished forever
Into the cruelty of oblivion.

    Death embraces our wet body and takes to its mouth beacuse body is perishable but it can't touch the soul. Soul can't be destroyed. We are souls and we can't be vanished forever Into the cruelty of oblivion. Raindrops completes water circle from clouds to earth and earth to clouds and it is a continuous process likewise soul(life) takes rebirth. However life is like raindrop is true so nicely depicted with amusing phraseology like..... chasm of uncertainty....cruelty of oblivion etc. Thank you dear Sanjukta. (Report) Reply

    Sort of nice philosophical drop. Years of experience goes with us into a dingy cell with only a promise of a new birth.Nicely done. (Report) Reply

    First three lines swept me off my feet: Yet another pungent poem. Loved it.
    We are all like raindrops,
    Falling parallel in a dull manner
    Towards the chasm of uncertainty.
