Immortality Ode - A Modern Poem
I don’t want to be immortal,
I don’t want to seek immortality,
Only the poison I need
To win the fight inside me
For keeping my soul intact.
No case, no pain, no report
Will be published.
My dead body will not create
Any frowning depression.
No need to be immortal,
I don’t need the immortality gift
Of the civilization trades in destruction
And makes money from blood;
I don’t need the immortality
From the civilization themed
With disparity and hatred,
Choking the green and blue
Fairies of earth, sea and the sky
With the mechanical arms of development,
The loss of life is measured by
The numbers of statistics
By the civilization in which
I do not make my existence eternal,
Give me some swift poison.
