A Lifeless Life


An elevator;
takes you up and down 
frequently;day and night;
either  to  heaven; or to  hell;
It depends how you behave;
Sometimes upward;
other times  downward;
or even to underground !
It looks like  God’s own iron hands;
who orders to be carried
either up or down;
Down to the hell; up to heaven;
The Lord’s chariot; neither pulled 
by a horse nor by any  wheel;
____________________________
A elevator takes you up to heaven;
Sometimes down to your own hell!
Also it looks like the gallows; 
or a hanging tree;
or a bore-well ;
no water; no air;
like a devil's fort in dark;
once you be in his custody;
No openings; No closings;
Neither a start nor an end; 
a lifeless life;
within a life !

    Surrealistic dreams, curious metaphors-confusing our reality. Sometimes the answers lie sideways. Wishing you well. Allan

    Dear Sir Allan Koven Sir, Life is like an elevator. There are ups and downs, but in the end, you control which direction it has to go, still sometimes you are out of your own control! Life is like an elevator, it's very still and it's very open and it doesn't go up and it doesn't go down. Life is sunny, life is rainy. Life is sweat and life is bitter; sweet. We are happy and we are in pain. That is life, like on elevator going up and down. Regards & Love from WILLIAMSJI MAVELI
