The Equalizer”
(Inspired by “Tuesday’s with Morrie” by Mitch Albom and “Origin” by Dan Brown)
 
Where did we come from?
Where are we going?
Questions dawning
From a curious mind
Asking himself about
His existence
Of his essentiality
In a world of doubts
Questioning his mortality
Does the soul live forever?
While the Earth body rots
Returning from dust
Our origin-
The Genesis of it all
The Exodus of lifw
Of fear engulfing the weary
The Uninvited Guest
Who knocks when you least expect it
Like a thief in the night
The greatest Equalizer
When time is of the essence
When the moment is drawing near
Remnants of the past
Of the beauty and madness around
When realization hits you in the eye
When you begin to really live
Knowing you’ve got a short time left
The greatest Equalizer
Death is not to be feared
For acknowledging it
Is accepting we all have
The same Final Destination
What is to be anxious about
Is a life full of regrets
When you are simply walking dead amongst the living
When you wasted precious time
Death-the greatest Equalizer of life
For when you know
Your days are numbered
You start living for the very first time.
