The Ambition. - Poem by Gangadharan nair Pulingat..

The old gentleman in his ninety's
Tells me a story, a hallucinated thought
Someone knocks my door in midnight
May I come here and carry you
The time is ripe and way is clear
I replied in my mind not ready
Till the marriage of my grand daughter's son
A thought of the old man that justified
There he sees the longevity of cherished life.

    This anecdotal account narrated in the poem reminds me of an old saying that nobody wants to leave this world of his own choice. If one long cherished wish is fulfilled, another will crop up, then another, so on and so forth.... Now, what is the secret of longevity? It is the peace of mind brought about by freedom from desires and not otherwise. (Report) Reply
