Ultimate Destination - Poem by Santosh Sharma

Ultimate Destination

Attaining heights of dreams
Some struggle to arrange the means
Completing the cycle of life
Some remain unfortunate to travel all the miles
One day every one terminates the journey at one destination.

Fame and fortune come like sea waves
One day shrink to the shadow of one self
Forgetting the blossomed days of life
All flowers become part of the dust at one destination.

Beauty gleams, shines like moon light
Every day adorns with costumes of choice
Slowly forgotten and eclipse in the day light
One day wrapped with the same coffin
Takes a departure from this threshold


People staying in mansions and palaces,
Holding treasure of wealth
The poor and the loved one’s completing life in their huts
All reach with empty hands at one destination.

At the sunset of life, our own leave us
Come with tears, return with wet feeling
and remembrance of our deeds
After completing the drama of life
Every one terminate their voyage at one destination.

    great write with a deep touch of reality and melacholy. Death is definite for the rich and poor and both leave this world empty handed. (Report) Reply
