My Life, my apprehension

                            My life, my apprehension        		

	(1)	Quietly, into this life, I came in creeping 
		The life my mother gave me, 74 years ago, 
		As a John Doe, while the whole world was sleeping,
		Doing good deeds to the society, & becoming a precious soul.

	(2)	While I was young, to become a Doctor, I had learned,
		For the society, I worked hard, with the knowledge I have earned
		Treating patients, old and sick, operations were also a fun,
		Whosoever heard me, may share the merits that I got in return.

	(3)	With wife and children, running my business
		In my midlife years, I had enjoyed deceptively
		Living happily like a celebrity, playing and saving my riches,
		Spending valuable time, & getting old unexpectedly.

	(4)	It was natural that we were all recycled
		Into the wheel of Sansara, we all lived and died
		From dust to dust and ash to ash, Christianity’s teaching unrivaled,
		Impermanence is the law of nature even Buddha could not shied

	(5)	So short is our life expectancy, by turning left and right
		Unexpectedly getting ill, & unknowingly getting old
		Anandathuriya wrote about the pleasures in life,
		Its duration was like a bubble, coming out of the ocean floor

	(6)	Inevitably, our life will end getting sick & old, steady and slow
		Do not bury, do not entomb, cremate my remains till it blends 
		My death wishes, to my family that I told 
		Summarily, with no exceptions, all in one day, till the end

        (7)	Even God entered Nirvana; for us mortals, leave alone,
		Do not weep, and do not moan and groan
		As we came in all alone, we go out in one’s own
		Journey is hard… walk your path, you must be tough 
		Passing the abyss, stride till you strike the beaches of the bliss, 
		It’s the longest of all voyages that end all the creeds, 
 		It is called the “Life’s Sansara Journey” indeed.
