So That I Can Always Live.... Poem by mithilesh yadav

So That I Can Always Live....

Rating: 5.0

Just to take a feel of world in a different view ……
I walked down the city towards the cemetery …..
And found a man digging a grave, and to him matched my chemistry …….

I requested him to let me sleep in grave till it's owner arrive …….
He allowed me to enjoy the seat of one's last drive ……….

36 inches below the earth I lied, like my body is died ……
And nothing to see left and right, only the direction towards god to decide …..

Lie here I realise one of the biggest fact of life ……
The divine was in front of me and I kept on looking left and right whole life …….

Lie here I realise truth was just above, what actually mention on a gravestone is something……..
But one spend whole his life taking care of the body which actually is nothing …….

So I decided to live a life which can be beautifully inscribed on my gravestone ………
And every one behind me can be happy when I finally leave alone …….

Lie here I realise that what is beneath me what will be on me,
and from which I am surrounded is my earth ………
How childish I was to think of all gold and luxury in life,
while the truth was same right from my birth……..

Oh! this opportunity to realise my life I explored lying a grave …..

Lying here I realise one day all my relation will leave me here and go ……
Some will cry for day or two some will forget me may be in one go …..
Lying here I realise that it should be my aim of life to part of good memories of many …….
Lying here I realise that I should never do a deed which can hurt any ……….

My learning sense was broken by the voice of men arriving towards the graveyard ……….
It was time to leave the place for it's owner who was arriving eagerly to cover his yard…..

Standing in a silence I observed yet one another teaching of my life ……..
Lie here now is just a body which don't have any children or wife ………
It just have it's own name and fame left behind …..
And all good deeds done for mankind ……

Living me alone one day here in same posture may be all will leave ………
But I have to work my best so that in there memory, dreams and love I could always live …….

Beautiful poem. Your each and every thought is so true and you are also very brave if actually you went to lie down in grave to have a first hand feel. But even if you didn't the dramatic opening is very impressive. Enjoyed reading the whole poem. Thank you for sharing.
