That Emptiness ...

a poem by Misiriya Basheer, India

I know I should not...
But I fear that emptiness...
The emptiness of that stillness...
Which wipes out the very meaning of life....

Today it is you....
Tomorrow it will be me....
The inevitable will befall ...
On every one of us...

Then what is the meaning of all this, that we do today?
Why do you want to cause pain for others....?
Why mock another living thing?
Why fight over the Earth?
Why kill?

Just think about that stillness,
Complete...
Empty...
Very soon to be wiped out from memories too...
You simply become NOTHING!!!

So what is the meaning of everything you do?
