Skull Universal - Poem by RAVIKIRAN ARAKKAL

We carry the skull universal
Carrying on a shoulder,
Till we become a handful
Of mud to melt into the earth,
The skull universal carrying
The brain, which makes
Our emotions of jealously,
Tears, smiles, laughs, fears,
Of histories, tales, religions,
Studying in the universities,
Of everything under the sun,
You, skull have no replacement
Attached to the skeleton
To support the soft parts,
Taking more time to be one
With elements of the earh.
