Death is the fact of Life

Death appears to be different than Life but death in itself is a maturity time for the life renewal.

Death is the fact of Life

Death is the fact of Life
Death in itself is a life renewal.

Death comes with every sleep
and a new life begins when I wake up!

Death is the revival
to reboot my mind into a new system.

Deathbed is the celestial stretcher
that transports me to the heavenly high.

Birth is the showtime of the great gamble
that lasts into ages of miracle levels I always win.

Death is the dear companion of life--
Death and life are one synergy
that breaths the energy as vital as it always prevails
but appears as the opposite and conflicting.

And yes--
Death is, in fact, the Life renewal.

I really like this poem, It's filled with true to life sentences. The one I love most is the that says: "Death is the dear companion of life". That is so very true. They are one, and at the same time they appear to be opposites while going hand in hand. Very well written my friend.

Death is not death at all; it's a passage time that a Soul takes to travel from one body to another. What one calls death, the other calls birth. There you hear the cry for a dead; here you hear the cry of a new born. The physical ends where the astral begins.

Hi Rathan,
Just consider this:
When we mourn the death of someone dear, we are not grieving for the person dead. We are grieving for ourselves; because it is our loss. The dead person is no longer housed in his physical form to experience / witness our grief. It is only the living who keep the dead alive.
"To live in the hearts of those you leave behind is not to die".

I deeply lament the deaths of the many people who lost their lives in the Tsunami that shook Japan on 11th March.

My heart goes out to every Soul in Shendai and Japan. I admire the equanimity with which the Japanese have been handling themselves. What is unfortunate and depressing is the fact that the entire International Community is watching the catastrophe helplessly and without blinking an eyelid. Every Nation has asked its people to evacuate.
Imagine a war-like situation. The entire Comity of Nations would have aligned themselves into two or more groups and would have riddled half our Universe with nuclear weapons. What the International Community has failed to appreciate is that this devastation in Japan, unlike in the 1945 nuclear devastation of Nagasaki and Hiroshima, is a man-made catastrophe in the name of Deterrence. What we are now witnessing is the might of Nature against the right of human beings to mangle the face of the Earth. In the name of Technology we not spared land, water or space. We pound the Planets in the ethereal world to see if it emits fire or water. We drill the bed of the sea to install our nuclear reactors. We raze down our forests to replace them with concrete jungles. We bore the depths of the seas to extract oil so that our jets could carry us across the world before sundown. We have forgotten the art of writing and have allowed computers to rob us of our thought process, our spellings and our grammar. We mock someone who still chose to cycle down to the town hall because he could not afford a motorised vehicle.
Nature has her own way of balancing her Resources; that includes us human beings too. She knows when to strike, where and how. We human beings are for the most part literate; but, we are not educated. You see the difference? Nature creates to preserve. We destroy nature to establish our supremacy; to display our ostentation; it’s total charade out there.
We are back to our basics when Might was indeed Right. The only difference being that we humans are now at the receiving end of Nature’s fury; her might
This is, perhaps, just the beginning of what could well be the beginning to a sordid end. Let us learn to live with Nature, not by molesting her, robbing her of her wealth, her health and her self esteem. She is indeed a deadly force. Let us live in harmony with her.

Natalie,
We try to establish our supremacy over nature, but it never happens and nature is one single infinite force which cannot be tethered by our infinitesimal trials.
