Ready.....All Set.....Go! - Poem by Geetha Jayakumar
How much do you want to run?
Where you are running into?
Is it into a Marathon Race?
Destination is same
The moment you are born
Running race begins.
Ready, All set..Go..
Starting point of each one is different
But the ending point is same.
So where are we running?
To kiss the line of death.
Which is our finishing point.
Whatever we do...
Whatever we make...
Whatever we earn...
Eat a food to either to fill our stomach
Or just to satisfy hunger.
To wear only one dress, at a time...
Only one cot to sleep.
At the End...
We require Only One Coffin of just six feet
Below the soil,
Even the last journey can be
full of near ones.
Or very few ones
Or can be cremated in a lavish way
Or in ordinary way too..
Or burnt to ashes
Which will mix with soil.
Life is one only
Life is worth if your presence could make others Happy!
And your absence is also felt by others.
Good deeds are often remembered even after death!
