Death #Q203

Do we know when andĀ from where it’d stem?
Does it spare a life even if (s)he were a gem?
Memory of the departed stays back as a totem.
Their souls leave us, but we never leave them.


Life’s Cruel #Q196

Life’s good, but not always. Cruel are its uncertainties.
Life’s good, but not to all. It attacks us, like a praying mantis.
It burns many dreams, and many goals,
and continues its game with unsuspecting souls.

PS: My thoughts and prayers are with the 45 helpless people who lost their lives in the recent bus accident at Mahbubnagar.
