Life could be lost at anytime. Leaving behind everything that man has worked and even killed others to get. But can we sit down one moment and contemplate on the fact that one day, we shall vanish and never to be seen? Maybe that will give us the chance to think of better things to do or make right choices to make irrespective of our situations.

I wake up

Suprise I still existed

Querying where I was

That denied me consciousness

 

Remember I did my last encounter

With consciousness

Descending into fears I did

That I only  expired for a second

 

Casting my mind back

I remember the very night

That had my Dad

In a golden casket

 

I widened my thought on all struggles

For riches and power

F or women and sex

Slaving this mundane world

 

But suddenly, very suddenly

I hit my chest and call to mind

Afterall here is just a stage

And like a cast, vacate  we must for real

 

So climbing up or down

We must serve the good always

for one day shall come

when the rope advances the tail

 

Just one day to come!

And the good is oft interred with the bones. It doesn't have to be that way as much good can be done in our life time be you rich or poor, reach out and help some one as you have shown with your life's struggle against injustice.
