I see it, the casket being lowered into the dirt,
There are so many things I wish to say but words fail me,
I think of all the moments that made you the lively person you were,
But yet here you lay, still as a stone,
Life plays its cruel jokes, departing clueless souls,
Annihilating the lives of the near ones and leaving behind incurable scars and holes,
In this world, you arrived empty handed and you depart the same,
For death, all stand equal, no money, no class, no fame,
The end comes at the least contemplated day,
The esse of life ceases, the bones become an ash of gray,
Don’t let the flames and dirt take away what’s vital and can be put to use for the less fortunate,
Pledge to donate your organs, a selfless act which is really great,
A small effort on your part would bring about wonders in certain lives, play that part,
Let your eyes brighten up a blind’s world, let someone’s dreams beat in your heart,
The course of life is such that which is created has to die,
This is the ultimate truth, though it appears to be wry,
In this journey, you will lose your loved ones, your friend, a companion or even a new born,
It’s all a part of the mortal world, and as they always say life goes on!
Religion is a collection of beliefs that connect human beings to a greater power. These powers are then broken down into several branches as different religions preach the beliefs of different deities. Idol worship is not uncommon in our country; in fact it forms the very basis of any religion. People visit their holy places of worship in faraway lands just to get a glimpse of their Almighty. Plenty of money is spent as a way of offering faith and worship. The so called messengers of God form an important part of religious practices. They have their own set of ideologies which they preach.
Then there is a group of people who put their faith in Science and reason. They have their own explanation for the creation of the universe. They believe in the Big Bang, while religion talks of God as the Almighty creator. There are also people who are confused. They pray, but do not have complete faith in it. They believe in scientific reasoning but fail to explain certain extraordinary happenings.
The world is full of people, some who believe in religion, some who don’t and some others who are not too sure. The best kind of practice to follow is that of Humanity. Do good, good will happen to you. Care for other human beings, and feel the responsibility. Donate your hard earned money to the less fortunate rather than offering it at a temple. Light a candle in places where people don’t know of light. It would bring smiles and give you a different form of bliss. Don’t choose to be hungry, feed the mouths who do not hold such choices. Put faith in yourself instead of waiting for miracles. People talk of places like heaven and hell, you do the good deeds and spread the joy, it would make your life on Earth heavenly!
