On death

Oh yeah, an unusual selection of a theme on Themedlyric….Welcome back readers.Death has always intrigued man for many years and still will continue to do so. Death is often dreaded by all so that it has occupied the position of an “Incurable Unavoidable Disease” in the hearts of men.One point to be agreed upon-if it were not for death, this world would become a dump yard of millenia old men and we would be walking upon them. In the current scenario, all wish to live a hale and healthy life for many years.Yes,I don’t say its wrong,as humans are beings with enough greed.As a matter of fact we must learn to accept death as a stage in life. In my view, Nature is always composed of dualities. Whatever we see is a mere expression of another. A man has an opposite as a woman,an electron has a positron,a stag has a doe,a yin to a yang.In this sense one must accept the duality of Life as Death. A parallel must read work is that of William Cullen Bryant named Thanatopsis (click here) which literally means -“Death’s Story“.Dear readers I give you a work on Death…Here is the poem…..

On death

Let the day be dark or

Night be bright.

What will happen is neither wrong nor right.

Lest death knock on thy doors,

Let away the grief and embrace it tight.

…………………………………………………………..

Oh! The soul in a nutshell,

Waiting to be cracked open.

Oh! The soul in a dam,

Waiting to be resolved.

Oh! The soul in a bow,

Waiting to be fired.

Oh! The soul in me,

Waiting for its Purpose.

…………………………………………………………..

Many a people say, “Death is bad!”

Do they know? Nor any experience they had?

Nearer and nearer, He comes glad.

Not knowing in what he is clad.
