What if you’re in the sky one day?
And then in the coffin, leaving everything in disarray!
Carving your dreams
Moulding your future
Only to realize
It was all a façade of caricature!
For the only place where you’ll truly dwell in
Would be with peace in your heart and serenity in the coffin!

Live a thousand moments in one life
Or live a thousand lives in one moment,
All the opulence
All the comfort
All the materialistic pleasures
Will all be your futile treasures!

It seems just yesterday,
When you were crawling on the floor
With your family in gay,
 And now all ready to be a part of clay!
When you look outside that wooden box
You see everyone mourning and indulging in small talks.
They bring you flowers, to place on your coffin
But none brought any, when you longed for one!
They sing words of praises, standing beside your coffin
But all kept calm then, and were busy gossiping!
They’re now shedding tears, standing right beside you
Weeping hard, saying they’re gonna miss you!
But where did the mankind go then,
When you were looking for a shoulder to cry on?

Life is all about twists and turns
A huge roller coaster to ride on
One feels one has inferred everything from world’s eyes
But it takes us to be in coffin, to finally understand this riddle called life!
Linking with A to Z challenge

Happy Reading

  4. Birth and death are not in our hands .. but living our life fruitfully certainly is ... why not make the most of the time we have :-)

  6. That was a power packed post, Geetika. Death is certainly out of our control, but living life to the fullest is completely doable. :)
