Length of Life


            Length of Life

              Is death something new in the stock

               Of events stored for mortals sake ?

               By Nature from it's early wake

               Scented blooms although shorter lives may take.

Length of life is not the mark

A human holds, a golden hook

To fish his laurels or to gain

His ends in life avoiding stake,

But the way he acts before its break.

Life of man from where it comes

And how in body lingers who knows ?

And who is to pronounce

It's form or size, and its immanence

Are we able to know ? poor souls

To let you see your sun set at noon

O ! hapless would it ever be ?

For irretrievable, if it is to happen

Could you dear mom bear the pain ?

Hurled unto darkness, what more to add

From the world to depart is sad

But to part with the one, prideless to you in life

Would it be so hard indeed ?
