Ultimate Truth - Poem by Kavya Leo Vakkayil

All the colored clothes were there
Washed, ironed and kept aside.
I wished I chose what I want to wear
But I wasn't asked, a word this day.
I was washed, groomed and embellished
With salty drops of warm tears
Family, friends and well wishers
Lined in queue and wept aloud
It wasn't yet time for my soul to leave
This beautiful world which now I loved.
I turned around and got mesmerized
For I wasn't taking anything I earned.
It was a lonely trip; to an unknown place
With no luggage nor my possessions
No lies, no duties
Nor those heavy weights of guilt.
I felt I was falling deep to the oceans
And flying to the vast blue sky
It was that final awaited minute
Of enlightenment which I never knew before.
Death: the truth none ever escapes
Touched my soul and flew away
l then closed my inner eyes
To rest in peace for ever after.
