The Last Lecture - Poem by Jagannath rao Adukuri
In Randy Pausch’s last lecture there is space
Left briefly only to be occupied all time-
The space that will exist all time, lacking
In substance like a quarry in the hillock,
Which exists as long as the hillock lasts.
Let us imagine the quarry hole filled with dark
And you stand on the rim of the hole that exists
In absence of space and presence of time.
As you continue to hit tangentially the last lecture
You do not get into the Randy Pausch’s circle
The circle of an inspiring cancer death
The circle of dark quarry humor with a twist
You merely stand on the rim and lean into the dark
Straining your eyes to see own reflection down there.
(Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams)
