The End Of Universe - Poem by Rajnish Manga

The End of Universe

The news
Must have reached your door steps
I have also come to know that
The universe is now expanding
At a rate slower than it was about
Three billion years ago.
Scientists have calculated that
At this rate the universe will survive
Another one billion years at the most.
Five Ws are pondering over the related issues.
Till the time a palpable solution to the riddle
Is available to us
Come, let us enjoy life to the fullest
Eat, Drink and Be Merry
Aboard a time machine,
‘Live and let live' should serve as
The cryogenic fuel
During our long voyage.

    The universe is now expanding
    At a rate slower than it was about
    Three billion years ago........ let us enjoy.... it is true...... along with that let us also enjoy the presence of God in us.
    enjoyment of life and prayerful devotion which will give us inner peace is the answer. thank you dear Rajnish Manga...... tony

    Thanks for your kind and inspiring words, Dr Tony. I am grateful that you have read this piece and gave it a respectable treatment which also carries a sublime message- enjoy the presence of God in us; enjoyment of life and prayerful devotion which will give us inner peace is the answer. Thanks once again, Sir, and A Very Happy New Year.

    A beautifully crafted write that expresses a very important message. While we ponder over this never ending question we succumb to your advice: live and let live or live life to the fullest for tomorrow is not promised.10 (Report) Reply

    The world is a lonely place. The fear of being lost feels so real. Then, out of nowhere, a friend comes and lends his moral support. Thank you, Dear Friend.

    This is the top most secret, I don't think anyone knows the certainty of this yet we all keep on guessing, Your Guess is as good as mine and our guess is as good as of all the scientistic. Only Creator/ Almighty knows. A fantastic poem on the subject.The final punchline in your poem is amusing: Instead of worrying about the end let us all enjoy what is left with us.10+++++ (Report) Reply
