Someday We Will All Go............ - Poem by krishnakumar chandrasekar nair

There is a place where we will all some day go
No immigration checks or hassles as before
No permits, stamped visas or pass ports
And nothing to declare at that ornate door
But just your integrity and nothing more
Black or brown, yellow or white
It matters not and everyone is treated right
Because you will leave body and baggage behind
Either six feet deep or as ashes in waters flowing wild
Untainted even having spent a lifetime on the sinful shore
Here you will just be a pure soul back at its very source
And what more, it will feel like really being back home.....

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The destination is fixed and even the time to depart. However, it has been mercifully kept secret. This should enthuse us to live more intensely realizing the true value of every breathing minute. We are already on the train but live as if there is no getting down.....

    though i don't happen to have the beliefs which would make me agree with the meanings of the poem or the poet's notes, I DO like both very much. it would be nice if they are true......FOR EVERYONE! not just for the ones who happen to believe in God or follow the right path in their lives.

    No immigration checks or hassles as before.... but when i was a christian, i was taught that nobody will get into Heaven unless they believe in God, and maybe even 'repent' of their sins; i'm not sure about the second part. :)
    so, if that is the case, it would be like 'immigration checks'. you are speaking of a particular religion? ? ? ?

    And what more, it will feel like really being back home.. .... this IS a comforting thought for those who believe in home aka Heaven as being a lovely place. [BUT I would write “what’s more” as in “what is more”, not “what more”. maybe it’s just a typo or a difference between this side of the Earth and the other side. :) ]

    here in the U.S., some ashes are kept in jars or thrown into the wind to go where the wind takes them. of course much of the burned remains just go into the trash bin i think. thanks for a few rhymes.
