Life And Death

Life And Death

1 min 164 1 min 164

Life is a stage 

We are all actors and actress in it

Infant cries for mother's warmth 

Toddler falls and walks on stage 


Footsteps to school with heavy Stachel 

Mind full of theories and criticisms 

Comes back as a revolutionist 

Bearing weapons of " revolutions" 


Stands among the midst of battlefields 

In winning her heart with pride and romance 

Time begins to fade with steps of life 

As horse cart clock struck in rapid 


Turns to be bald with a long whisker 

Reading newspapers with long round spectacles 

Talking about decade-old revolutions 

Missing the youth hero 


Turns to grey whisker 

Find for the company to murmur old tales 

Sans eyesight, sans teeth, sans hair 

The " Mara" on way waves 


With sobs and tears his burial with white flowers 

Tomb engraved as " in memory of George " 

Pride and prejudice under the grave 

Rottens the skin, all forget his presence.
