Oh Life

a poem by Srinivasann P

I hate you to such an extent that,
I have started loving death

O life, though you are known to be bright ‘n’ colourful,
You are uncertain, at times, you are colourful,
But, all of a sudden you become so dark and dull
That I find it difficult to adjust myself with you.

O life, death through dark it always remains dark.
Though initially one finds darkness, a bit difficult to adjust,
But once adjusted to it, its loving and cheerful
Darkness of death is certain which never changes with time.

O life, death though bitter on its arrival.
Once it fully embraces, I can get rid of all
The worldly troubles caused by you.

O life, you are the one who will ultimately lead me to death,
But, death, will ultimately lead me to an eternal life
Which has no end.
