Epitaph

“Yes”, they would say,
“Her life was a fight
Between the creative and the mundane.”
“But she fought well,”they would add.

Then they would go back
To fighting their mirrors
And donning the glossy masks.

“How unfortunate,” they would exclaim,
“That she had to die” they would sob
In shock and sadness

Then they would go back
And write their wills
And pay their premiums.

“If only she had told me,”
They would exclaim
And shake their heads

Then they would go back
To silent mode
Signing deals for their future.

“Did she not try?” they would wonder
“She called once… maybe twice”
“Or am I forgetting all the times
She appeared in little hints
Unopened mails, unanswered calls”

Then they would go back
To weeding more seeds
And seeding more weeds.

  1. Hey…
    I am wonder struck… the last 2 lines says it all…

    “To weeding more seeds
    And seeding more weeds.”

    I can’t help thinking: is this the human nature? Are our feelings superfluous?
    Only question and no answer!!!

  2. Yes. It is human nature to want something but it is also human nature to not give the same thing to others when they want it.
