Life and Death
by Gaurang Bhatt, MD Bookmark and Share

The journey of Life
From Africa across far land bridges,
Paddling unknown treacherous seas,
Over crevasses and mountain ridges,
Across desert, tundra and prairies.

Be it over days, months or years,
In ecstasy, apathy or in agony,
Expending blood, toil and tears,
With glee, want or parsimony.

From ocean to continent, their lot,
To all but survival, totally oblivious,
Forever trying to fill life's leaky pot,
Tantalus, Sisyphus and Orpheus.

Can futile words in prose or verse
Lend meaning to the incoherence
Of life's journey, that we traverse
From incontinence to incontinence.
