Wherefrom We Come - Poem by Amitava Sur

Our soul being totally pious and immortal
Is originated from ZERO.
We arrive on this earth as a part of our passage
From that space of ZERO only.
We spend our mortal life, here on this earth
For a short spell as allowed to us
With good or bad being sinful or pious
As we all choose.
And then leaving all our clad
Along with bone, blood and flesh
Or hatred, egos and vices,
We go back to the universe again,
The permanent home - our true domain
Which is a ZERO, an endless entity! !

Still we fight, we envy
And uselessly we hate!
Though nothing will remain
Or may be carried with the soul.
Finally, we all have to go back
Empty handed to our abode in that ZERO.
Amitava (10.10.2014)

    It is, indeed, a great mystery! Where from have we come and where do we go?
    A question debated by poets, scholars and philosophers! However, it is believed that
    'good karma' is carried forward to the next birth.
    A thought provoking poem, Amitava ji. Really enjoyed reading it.

    Yeah, i think we are thinking to grow again too much
    to be the one that we think big enough
    Its fine if we never compete
    Its finer if we enjoy once we only have and meet
    But i agree with you, if we overwhelmed by this earthly cheat
    there is nothing at last, same as we started, zero again
    and many zeros already there...and we never be zero plus one
    if only we do good, the remembrance will make zero live eternally

    Amazingly brilliant poem, Amitava! It encompasses your beliefs and philosophy of life and death very astutely. It is a simple yet, in depth look at how you think, your intense insight adds greatly to the profound effect your words produce. You are very mature in your thinking and philosophical outlook on life itself. Give you 100 - 10's if possible. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
