Last Journey ..... taste the fruits of your life .....

Last Journey


Last Journey


Soon it will be time to bid adieu

To this world

Ages reaching sixties and seventies.

Prepare yourself for the last journey.

Tighten your seat belts

Gear up for that last ride.

Taste the fruits of your life,

What you sow, so shall you reap.

The journey towards sunset

Will be steep

And will really

Taste as you reap.

So, get ready for the finale

Do not weep, do not weep.


Corona Virus,

Looming over the whole world

Causing deaths,

In hundreds and thousands,

Most vulnerable are senior citizens,

And children, adults and old.

My son laments

God is angry;

Punishing His children

One and all.

So, friends, get ready for that last journey,

Wait for Almighty’s call.


BUT, my son laments,

These days too shall pass;

Good days will soon come

Do not feel harassed;

Virus will be defeated

By medicine to surpass

All the ill effects and the agony

Will soon become a thing of the past.

Have Faith, have Patience, have Courage, my friends,

This too shall pass, this too shall pass.


God ... my guiding light ... show me the path ... twilight of life ... dawn of spiritual life ...

last-journey

Purify your soul through good deeds ...

Hari Thanks for your comment. We get so busy passing through life that we forget life will come to an end one day. We only get to prepare for the last journey when we enter the sunset zone of living.

God bless you and your family .....

Sad reality. One has to reap what one sows. Ending no one sees until it's nearby. Great poem to realize the ultimate truth of life that it ends too.
