Whether to

the choice laid in front of i-
two of them, immortality and death.
in delirium i stood, whether to.
sleepless, i thought, whether to.
yet the conclusion not made.
the coin i spinned to see, it-
stood there in the plane, pointless.
the sand in the glass filtered out
the time came to decide,indicated.
as always, i followed my way,-
closed my eyes and thought.
the choice elected, death.
immortality through death, my choice.
decayed my sinned body, but,
glorified my humane soul.
mortal i am, mortal i be,
i leave my earthly body behind.
yet, let me be unlamented,
for immortality; my soul achieved..

Shravan RN said...

A beautiful poem, Shravan. The final message we get from life is Immortality. Death is just like moving from one room to another.

Best wishes and have a nice day:)
