Pangs Of Loss - Poem by MVJ Simon

Biting into the innards


Eating me alive


The bitter truth about life


Ebbing slowly away




Moving toward the grave


Elements beckon


Fire, water, wind and earth


Clamoring for the remains




The truth mocks at me


Man’s follies and travesties


Keep him busy till last


While his soul yearns to be free




Hoping for a life better next time


Pining to meet beloved ones


While this life ebbs slowly away


Moments filled to brim with madness




When you waste this life given


And chase all glories in vain


When your children lie in wait


For your caress and presence




Isn’t it time you lived first?


This life you’ve been blessed


Or squander it all away


And wait for a glorious life next
