Poem: Cherish You Must
Cherish you must, but wouldn’t it be better,
To choose how to live and plonk it into a letter,
To Selflessly water and plant a Seed,
With no ulterior motives or any sort of greed.
Cherish you must, but there isn’t much time for Books to read,
For you’ve miles to go for lineage and life to lead,
Why not live life on your own Principles, sweat and tear?
For other’s shoulders are only needed for coffins to bear.
Cherish you must, but do keep in Mind,
Dotage will come and it won’t be kind,
Then you’ll depart as a tenant of your body,
Utterly silent and stiffed like rowdy.
Cherish you must, but with the Soul you trust,
For the Universe would recall you and burst,
And when you leave – unclad and must,
You, yourself, will dissolve into mystic Dust.
