Theme: Life

Pangs of Loss

Biting into the innards
Eating me alive
The bitter truth about life
Ebbing slowly away

Moving towards the grave
Elements beckon
Fire, water, wind and earth
Clamoring for the remains

The truth mocks at me
Man's follies and travesties
Keep him busy till last
While his soul yearns to be free

Hoping for a life better next
Pining to meet beloved ones
While life ebbs slowly away
Moments filled to brim with madness

When you waste this life given
And chase all glories in vain
When your children lie in wait
For your caress and presence

Isn't it time you lived first?
This life you've been blessed
Or squander it all away
And wait for a glorious life next
