FALLING FROM THE SKY

The jumping out of a plane resembles
Right Into the arms of gravity’s demands
That anxiously pulls him onto the ground
As his prevailing destiny commands.
No parachute on his back is to be found
For him to avoid the inevitable impact
So he must soon find a way to escape
Before all his hopes are really whacked.
Between the plane and the ground though
A distance, short or long, to cover must have
That definitely indicates the length of his life
That no one, certainly, has the right to halve.
The drama of Man has though just started
As he has no command over his will
But the glory of his indubitable spirit
It makes him stand up and never kneel.
He laughs at his own condemnation
And proudly declares: " I am here to live."
I do not care when my fall is over
Fear in my heart " I'll never forgive."
He begins enjoying his hastening falling
As he makes plans myriad dreams to fulfill
"My works," With all his force, triumphantly shouts:
"Even when I go, here they are going to be still."
Thus Man victorious of life’s adventure emerges
Having beaten all odds and the fear of death
A monument is now of wisdom and valor
For he never gives up, till his very last breath!
