===Death ===

I meet my death

Not when my body is on funeral pyre

 I meet my death

When I lose my zest and fire


I meet my death

Not when I turn into ashes, buried and cremated 

But when I look behind, wailing minds

And cannot stand up for my rights 


I meet my death

Not when my mortal curtains are drawn

But when the distant eyes cannot see the dawn 


I meet my death

Not when I take leave and bid adieu

But when I am being mournful and tangled up in blue 


 Death is not sans body, mind and heart

Death is sans life, soul, conscience and 

I fall apart.

    I find , ” Death ” to be a very incisive and insightful work which deals with existential questions and the narrator’s personal responses to them , (in lines such as , “Death is not..” for instance,) in a style that engages readily with the reader .
