ON REALITY OF DEATH / Poem by Radhey Shyam Varshney

Poem by Radhey Shyam Varshney



My Death
Was written the moment
I took birth on this earh
and took my first breath
With a life span
Shortest, medium or a bit long
To be calculated in years, months, and days
Till the last breath
Then why to afraid of death?

All Sanaatan scriptures
The life span is a passage
And death a state
When configuration of elements
Earth water fire air sky
Along with it’s epiphenomena*
Praan, light, consciousness They are withdrawn
Thereby stoping ‘function’ of organs
Leaving the body dead.

When I die
On my demise
Need not to be sad and cry
‘Cause I have lived the life
With destiny and as I liked
Some time in accordance
Some time in confrontation with that
In doing my deeds
Divine or devilish
To be born again to take another life
Impossible to be comprehended by western mind.

Preparing for death
In actuality…….
That is preparation to live this life meaningfully
With awakening of cosmic reality.

(C)Radhey Shyam Varshney
